Nagaland: BJP Submits latter to governor supporting Neiphiu Rio as next CM

Nagaland outgoing chief minister TR Zeliang submitted his resignation to governor PB Acharya on Tuesday

"The governor had asked Rio to submit letters of supporting MLAs in 48 hours".

Rio, accompanied by BJP leader Ram Madhav, had submitted letters of support to the governor during the day but Acharya is seeking documents signed by the respective party presidents. "I also assure the Naga people here that we will extend full support to the new government wherever the action of the government is in the larger interest of the Naga people apart from playing a constructive role of opposition in furthering the overall cause of the Nagas", Zeliang said.

With the NPP being known as a close ally of the BJP both at the centre and the Northeast, the inability of the NPP MLAs to find place in the NDPP-BJP coalition government in Nagaland raises many questions.

BJP leader Biplab Deb Kumar is all set to be the next chief minister of Tripura.

Voting for the 59 seats in the 60-member Assembly was held on February 27 as NDPP chief Neiphiu Rio was elected uncontested from Northern Angami II seat. Any party or alliance of parties claiming to form the Govt. ought to enjoy the support of a minimum of 31 MLAs which is termed as 'simple majority.

"We went to the people with a pre-poll alliance with NDPP", he said.

"Today I can officially say that we are no longer, we have no track with NPF".

Kohima: Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) chief Neiphiu Rio on Sunday said he is confident of forming the government in Nagaland and would request Prime Minister Narendra Modi to attend the swearing-in ceremony which is likely to be held on 7 or 8 March.

The Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) is leading in 12 seats while its ally the BJP in six.

"The BJP has been working with the agenda of development and will continue to do so in Nagaland too", he said.

"But later NDPP candidate Namri Nchang was declared victor after recounting of votes without the presence of NPF polling agents and the candidate".

The delegation was led by BJP Legislature Party leader, Y Patton, accompanied by Union Health Minister JP Nadda and party's general secretary Arun Singh, who are here as central observers for the party.
