Nagaland | 18 NPF MLAs want ‘stable regional coalition’ govt
KOHIMA, March 8, 2019: Eighteen of the 26 opposition Naga People's Front (NPF) legislators in Nagaland have proposed to their legislature party leader T.R. Zeliang to work out modalities with the ruling Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) for a "stable regional coalition", a NPF legislator said on Thursday.
However, the NDPP, which is leading the People's Democratic Alliance (PDA) government, has termed the proposal of the NPF legislators as "absurd and incomprehensible" since the NDPP-BJP alliance was and is a pre-poll alliance.
The political development in the state is significant in the wake of the NPF denying any rift within its legislature party.
