ITANAGAR, Jun 5: The Arunachal Pradesh unit of the Meghalaya-based regional political party, the National People’s Party (NNP), on Tuesday announced that it will launch a statewide awareness campaign themed, ‘Mission clean vote: Say no to money culture, yes to development’.
Briefing media persons on the objectives of the campaign, state NPP youth wing president Bage Kamsi said, “The state youth (wing) has nothing to do with the party’s ideology in the mission; we are only aiming to create awareness on the deep-rooted money culture.”
Kamsi said the youth wing’s sole objective is to create awareness among the youths of the state to fight against money culture in any form of election. He also highlighted the “adverse effects of money culture on socioeconomic life.”
Divulging the campaign’s strategy, Kamsi said it would involve conducting seminars, distributing pamphlets and circulations, and sharing short movies through social media platforms.
The campaign, which will start in Itanagar, will be conducted in phases in various districts of the state. A “mega rally” will also be held in Itanagar, he said.
The campaign will target higher educational institutions, religious institutions, community-based apex bodies, etc, and involve people from all walks of life, including civil servants, women social activists, journalists, poets, economists, research scholars, etc, Kamsi said.
“We know there will be a lot of negativism on the idea, as ours is a deep-rooted money culture. However, we want to try our best to bring some changes,” he said, seeking support from the people.
