NPF to support non-Congress coalition in Manipur

Kohima: The NPF president and Chief Minister of Nagaland Dr Shurhozelie Liezietsu had made it clear that the NPF will extend support to any non-Congress coalition government in Manipur. In a statement issued by Media and Press Bureau Naga People's Front, Central Office said the NPF is a major coalition partner of the North East Democratic Alliance formed in May last year at Guwahati with the declared aim of ridding the Congress party from the region and to bring all-round development to these parts of the country under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and has also been in alliance with the BJP and other non-Congress political parties in Nagaland since 2003 under the banner and nomenclature of Democratic Alliance of Nagaland.

The statement is issued by the Central office of the NPF to clear doubts and rumours going onin Manipur, especially in political and media circles. Rumours and speculations doing the round that the Naga People's Front won't be a part of the non-Congress coalition arrangement in Manipur to provide an alternative Government to the Congress and that the NPF Manipur Unit has put forth pre-conditions before joining the BJP-led coalition arrangement in Manipur, are absolutely false, the NPF said.
