New Delhi: Nagaland’s Tourism and Higher Education Minister Temjen Imna Along on Saturday shared a video of himself stuck in muddy water. He could be seen being helped out by 3 people, but initially he was struggling to get out.
Check New Car Assessment Programs (NCAP), says minister
Through the video posted on social media platform ‘X’, the Minister tried to advise the people that they should check a car’s New Car Assessment Programs (NCAP) rating before purchasing it. The NCAP rating shows the safety rating of the vehicles.

In his famous funny way, Along wrote, “Aaj JCB ka Test tha! Note: It’s all about NCAP Rating, Gadi Kharidney Se Pehley NCAP Rating Jarur Dekhe.” He said people must check the vehicles safety standards given that their life and safety depends on it.
In the video that was posted by the Minister, he was seen being trapped in a muddy water body, probably a lake. As he tries to get out, he is seen being helped by 3 men. While one of them pushes Along from behind, the other 2 hold his hands and try to pull him out.
After a few failed attempts to get out of the water, the Minister stops as he seems to be tired. The Minister then makes one final attempt and is finally on his knees and out of the water. He is then helped on to his feet by one of the 3 men and finally walks on dry ground.
The 4:42 minutes long video has gathered more than 15,000 likes since being shared and has also been shared on the social media platform by more than 1,000 users. The Minister is known for sharing funny memes on social media, especially his ‘X’ handle.
What is NCAP?
In 2022 the Global New Car Assessment Programme (NCAP) introduced new protocols to test the safety standards of the cars manufactured in India. While India already has its own car assessment programme known as Bharat NCAP, several cars have been tested under Global NCAP. This Global NCAP is applied under the ‘Safer Cars for India’ campaign run by Global NCAP.
