Cong may reach out to NPF for tie-up in Nagaland polls

Thursday, February 08, 2018

New Delhi: The Congress may reach out to the Naga People's Front (NPF) for an informal understanding in some seats for the February 27 Nagaland assembly polls, sources in the party said.

The Congress yesterday came out with its list of 23 candidates for elections to the 60-member Assembly. The state's ruling NPF has announced it will contest in 58 assembly segments.

The BJP has already tied up with the newly-formed Nagaland Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) and has fielded candidates in 20 seats. The NDPP, led by former chief minister Neiphiu Rio, will have its candidates in 40 constituencies.

Today is the last date of filing nominations for the elections. The nominations can be withdrawn before February 12.

"The NPF has already declared candidates for almost all the seats. However, there is still time left for the candidates to withdraw nominations.
