NPF assures support to new Manipur government
Kohima: Nagaland Chief Minister Shurhozelie Liezietsu on Tuesday brushed aside reports that his Naga People's Front (NPF) will not support the new non-Congress coalition government in Manipur. The NPF supremo said that it "did not put any pre-condition" before joining the BJP-led coalition arrangement in Manipur and such reports are absolutely false.
The NPF is a major coalition partner of the North East Democratic Alliance formed last May in Guwahati with the declared aim of ridding the Congress party from the region and to bring all-round development to this part of the country under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
It has also been in alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party and other non-Congress political parties in Nagaland since 2003 under the banner of the Democratic Alliance of Nagaland.
