Neiphu Rio-headed People's Democratic Alliance comprising NDPP and BJP is set to form the next government in Nagaland after he submitted letters of support of 32 legislators to governor PB Acharya in Kohima on Monday. Acharya had told reporters that Rio and Zeliang have claimed to have majority support, but "I have not invited anyone to form the government as of now".

Rijiju, who extensively campaigned for the BJP and its ally Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) in Nagaland, said the Congress was nowhere to be seen as the party has not won a single state in the 60-member Assembly.

The NDPP contested 40 seats and secured second position with 18.

N.R. Zeliang is the brother of Nagaland Chief Minister T.R. Zeliang, who has won the adjoining Peren Assembly constituency.

Even with just one seat - in 2008 it had seven - NPF made it a part of its government. But its tally of 27 seats fell well short of the magic number: 31.

After the results, lone Independent elected candidate Tongpang Ozukum and lone JD (U) elected candidate G Kaito Aye had supported to the BJP-NDPP alliance.

With the NPP being known as a close ally of the BJP both at the centre and the Northeast, the inability of the NPP MLAs to find place in the NDPP-BJP coalition government in Nagaland raises many questions. "It is good for the Northeast, good for India", he said.

So also from the 12 elected BJP MLAs by the BJP president within 24 hours. "Even though Rio met the governor, as of now, the hung assembly situation continues".

The NPF tried to swing the BJP in its favour, with Zeliang even reportedly threatening to withdraw from the alliance government in Manipur.

Meanwhile, the ruling Naga People's Front (NPF) of Zeliang, which had upto 50 legislators in its camp in 2015, was restricted to 26 seats - four short of majority. However, NPF is still seeking the support of BJP in a quid pro quo manner.
