In tune with the changing times, the Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee has brought out a Video Compact Disk highlighting the past performance of Congress MP of dissolved Lok Sabha K Asungba Sangtam, who is seeking re-election to the Lok Sabha for the third time.

The 45-minute documentary, to be shown to the electorate, incorporated video clippings of Asungba's public engagements and interviews of NPCC president and former Chief Minister SC Jamir interwoven in between.

Both Jamir and Asungba called upon the people to vote for Congress for the third term and explained the party's stand on the Naga peace process as well as socio-economic development of the hill state.

Interestingly, the documentary also incorporated an interview of Democratic Alliance of Nagaland (DAN) consensus candidate Wangyuh Konyak, recorded during last year's assembly election, where he praised policies and programmes of Congress and described Jamir as an undisputed leader of Nagas.

Wangyuh, pitted against Asungba for May 5 parliamentary polls, had been elected to state Assembly in last year's election, but later left the party and joined Nagaland People's Front (NPF), a major coalition partner of DAN government.

The documentary made in Nagamese dialect was shown to mediapersons before being submitted to the state's chief electoral officer (CEO) for clearance.
