Neiphiu Rio, Ram Madhav stake claim for new govt”

Guwahati: P B Acharya, governor of Nagaland gave 48 hours to the ruling Naga front to prove its majority in the 60 member assembly.

The BJP had a pre-poll alliance with the NDPP and the people have given us the mandate, Mr Sarma said. While BJP contested 20 seats, the rest of the 40 candidates were fielded by NDPP.

A senior leader of the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP), an ally of the BJP, said Rio, in his meeting with the Governor, had staked claim to form the government in Nagaland saying he has the support of 32 MLAs.

Top sources from state BJP, however, reiterated to The Wire that the party would not step back from its earlier decision and "would back NDPP".

One of the first priorities of a BJP-supported government here will be to bring in a settlement to the talks with the NSCN (Isak-Muivah) and other groups.

Asked if any official letter was given to outgoing chief minister T R Zeliang on the breaking of ties, Sarma said, "In politics, we don't go by too many letters".

Curtains fell on the drama over the formation of government with Assam minister and BJP leader Himanta Biswa Sarma reaching Kohima to iron out the fine details of the coalition, christened People's Democratic Alliance.

"We strongly feel that NPF, BJP and NPP alliance should form the government in Nagaland as already NPP and NPF are alliance partner of the BJP-led government in Manipur".

The Governor also said that NPF president Dr Shurhozelie Liezietsu informed him that he has written BJP national President Amit Shah that the NPF-BJP alliance is still going. Besides the eight seats of the NPF and NPP, and one from Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), the BJP with 21 seats crossed the simple majority mark of 31. Showing a massive increase in its footprint in the state, the BJP alone secured 12 seats this time, overshooting expectations from all parties. Confirming the rumours, Sarma felt it would be improper for Zeliang to meet central leadership at this juncture as it would send wrong signals to the people of Nagaland.

"We are confident of forming the government".

In a release Friday, NPF announced that in the interest of the political solution to the Naga problem it continues to be an alliance partner of the BJP. This took place in the presence of Union Health Minister Jagat Prasad Nadda and BJP National General Secretary Arun Singh. He hopes to lead the state as the chief minister once again. "With Neiphiu Rio at the helm of affairs state and Prime Minister Modi in Delhi, it will become much easier because you need a stable government".
