Nagaland Assembly polls: BJP-NDPP alliance fails to secure majority; here is the complete winners list
The BJP-NDPP alliance failed to secure a majority in Nagaland, with the state throwing up a hung Assembly
The Assembly election in Nagaland delivered a fractured verdict with no party or pre-poll alliance having a majority. The BJP-NDPP alliance failed to secure a majority in Nagaland, with the state throwing up a hung Assembly.
The ruling NPF, which emerged as the single largest party, extended an invitation to the BJP join the new dispensation, though the BJP-NDPP combine may be able to form a government with help from smaller parties like NPP, JD(U) and an independent. The saffron party got an informal invitation from NPF leader and chief minister TR Zeliang to join the new government.
The NPF is the single largest party in the state with 27 seats. The BJP-NDPP combine has also won 27 seats and are leading in one each.
The NPP, a North East Democratic alliance partner of the BJP, has won two seats, and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's JD(U) one. If the BJP-NDPP alliance wins the two seats where their candidates are leading, its tally would go up to 32, two more than the magic figure of 30.
The BJP had parted ways with the NPF just ahead of the polls and joined hands with the newly launched NDPP of three-time former chief minister Neiphiu Rio, also an old Naga People's Front hand.
Zeliang, the NPF leader, said his party continued to be a part of the North-East Democratic alliance led by the BJP and hoped the saffron party will form the new government with it.
Though there was no official word from the BJP on whether it would be a part of the NPF-led government, Shah had told a press conference in New Delhi that the number of states under the saffron party's belt has gone up to 21 from 19.
