Nagaland NCP withdraws support from ruling DAN Govt

Kohima: The Nagaland unit of NCP has decided to pull out from the ruling Democratic Alliance Nagaland (DAN), signaling the end of DAN coalition in the next assembly election.

Nagaland Nationalist Congress Party president Neiba Ndang, confirmed that the state NCP, with full approval of the Central leaders, at its executive meeting, held at Dimapur on Monday, unanimously resolved to pull out from the DAN coalition citing numerous ‘betrayals’ from the major DAN partner, the Nagaland People’s Front (NPF).

The party, however, informed that the final straw came during the last by-election to Aonlengden Assembly constituency, in which the NPF went alone with its candidate and never consulted its other partners.

”For so long we have tolerated and tried to keep up the coalition spirit. In any major policy matters or decisions, they (NPF) should at least consult with their coalition partners.

But in the case of Aonglengden by-election, there was never a consensus among the DAN partners,” Mr Ndang said.

With the NCP pulling out, the DAN government is now reduced to only NPF Government as there are no other political allies.

Even the five Independent legislators in the current State Assembly have been reduced to ‘associated members’ of the NPF.

In the 11th Nagaland Legislative Assembly, the NCP has two legislators with Dr Chumben Murry, holding portfolio of Agriculture Minister and Pangyu Phom, the Parliamentary Secretary for rural Development and Rural Employment and Poverty Alleviation (REPA).

Both Mr Murry and Mr Phom are inclined to NPF, so which there is no threat to the present Neiphiu Rio led government. (UNI)
