BJP may ally with NPF to form govt in Nagaland: Rijiju

BJP may ally with NPF to form govt in Nagaland: Rijiju

Acharya said he has asked Rio to submit signatures of all the 32 MLAs supporting him by Monday.

Mr Rio, who refused to reveal details of the agreement sealed with the BJP on the representation of parties in the government, said the coalition would be called "People's Democratic Alliance". "There is no question of going back to NPF in forming the government", he said while talking to media persons after meeting former MP and chief ministerial candidate Neiphiu Rio. Instead, the BJP leaders, including Assam cabinet minister Himanta Biswa Sarma gave statements that Zeliang should resign gracefully, respecting democratic norms.

He said the NPF has won 27 seats and combined with the 12 seats won by the BJP, "We will be able to provide a stable and strong government to the people of the state".

Africa Command have been investigating the incident for months, under intense scrutiny from government officials and the media. When the first American drops, the two other soldiers tried to pull him to safety, eventually fleeing into a scrub area.

The party has also tried to queer the pitch by asking the party to support NPF in a quid pro quo manner as the party also supported BJP in Manipur a year ago to form a government against the Congress. With this, the total number of seats in support of the alliance has gone up to 32 - one more than the majority mark of 31 in the 60-member Assembly. Though JD (U) had a pre-poll alliance with the NPF, it has chosen to go with the NDPP-BJP combine.

The BJP wrested Tripura, the Left bastion, and received an invitation to be part of the government in Nagaland, while Meghalaya elected a hung Assembly.

Rio, who floated the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) just ahead of the assembly elections, had cobbled a pre-poll alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The meeting further resolved that solving the lndo-Naga political problem would be at the top of NDPP's agenda and it would play the role of facilitator and make every possible effort to bring about an early solution that was "honourable, inclusive and acceptable" to the people.

The surgeon general, Jerome Adams, said: "Addiction is a chronic disease, and not a moral failing". But those increases varied dramatically from state to state, even within a region.

Similarly, the National People's Party (NPP), led by its state unit president Ato Yepthomi, also submitted its letter of support to Rio's leadership.

On Sunday, both Rio and Zeliang had met governor P.B. Acharya and claimed to have the support of the majority of MLAs.

Post the election results, Zeliang pitched for a larger coalition involving the BJP, NPDP and his party NPF, leaving virtually no room for the Opposition.
