Nagaland set for opposition-less all-party govt | Kohima News – Times of India

KOHIMA: In a significant political development, Nagaland is heading for an all-party government, as the opposition Naga People’s Front (NPF) is most likely to join the People’s Democratic Alliance (PDA) government headed by Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), an ally of the PDA government is, however, yet to make its position clear about the all-party government.
The main opposition party in the Northeastern state, the NPF, which is the single largest party in Nagaland with 25 MLAs, decided to join the PDA government apparently for taking forward the much talked and vexed Naga political issue between the Centre and Naga political groups.
Led by Rio, the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) with 20 members and the BJP with 12 MLAs are also the partners of the PDA government. Two independent members are also supporting the government while one seat was lying vacant in the 60-member state Assembly after the death of an MLA.
