The BJP strives to bring about all round development based on the principle of 'Sabh ka Saath, Sabh ka Vikas', Sitharaman said while addressing an election rally in Dimapur.

"Those people who cannot deliver good governance are the ones spreading fears (among the people) about the BJP," said the union minister.

Election to the 60-member Assembly will be held on 27 February and the results will be out on 3 March.

"BJP follows an inclusive policy for a cohesive nation with equal respect to all religions. We are committed to unite the society and take the state forward," the minister added.

The BJP led central government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi is giving much attention on the construction of India-Myanmar-Thailand Trilateral Highway via Nagaland which will open the access to South East Asia, she said.
