BJP, IPFT MLAs to meet on March 6 to elect leader

Nagaland Assembly elections 2018 NDPP-BJP in a win-win situation NPF offers support

BJP's ally at the national level and Bihar, JD-U, dumped its pre-poll ally NPF and made a decision to "support the BJP" in the formation of a stable government in Nagaland.

Earlier Sunday Acharya had said that NDPP leader Neiphiu Rio has the majority and should form the government.

On the Left front's poor show in Tripura, the former Union minister said no political party can become irrelevant in India.

The BJP has 35 MLAs and the Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT) has eight. UDP is also a part of NEDA. The UDP won six seats while its alliance partner the HSPDP won two seats.

In the 60-member assembly, the NDPP bagged 16 seats, the BJP 11 and leading in one seat, the National Peoples Party got two seats, the JD-U and Independent one each.

CPI (M) politburo member Hannan Mollah said the party is facing one of the toughest situations following its defeat in Tripura, which has "forced us to rethink in a new way".

A senior leader of the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP), an ally of the BJP, said Rio, in his meeting with the Governor, evinced confidence to form the government in Nagaland. "Your happiness should not increase the sadness of others because the party motto is to take everyone together on the road to development", he said in a message to party karyakartas (workers). "We can't let the BJP derive benefits out of division among Left secular and democratic forces", the central committee member said. Along with support from JD (U) and an independent candidate, it reached the 31 mark to stake claim to form the next government. Acharya has asked Rio to submit signatures of all the 32 MLAs supporting him by tomorrow.

Mr Rio has been the state Chief Minister from 2003 to May 2014 when he had shifted to the central politics as a Parliamentarian.

BJP chief Amit Shah said on Saturday his party's victories in the Left's citadel Tripura and Nagaland were an endorsement of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership by the people of the Northeast.
