In the aftermath of the May 18 merger of the state unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) along with two legislators- minister of forest M.C.Konyak and parliamentary secretary geology and mining Yanthungo Patton- with the Nagaland People’s Front (NPF), the BJP has begun consultations with legal experts to start proceedings against the two legislators. Disclosing this, BJP national council member Johny Rengma said the merger was ‘technically wrong’ indicating that the merger could run into rough legal weather. Rengma also clarified he was not in the running for the post of state unit president of the party as reported in the media as the issue would be decided by the party’s national leaders. Meanwhile, following the decision of the state BJP to merge with Nagaland Peoples Front (NPF) along with two legislators, the BJP Wokha divisional unit and Phek divisional unit have unanimously decided to endorse the party’s decision. In connection with this an emergency meeting of the BJP Wokha divisional unit held on May 20 at Wokha under the chairmanship of Dr TM Lotha, co-convener of Democratic Alliance of Nagaland (DAN) and chairman of Political Affairs Committees (PAC). The meet after a thorough deliberation unanimously resolved to endorse state BJP’s decision to merge with the Nagaland Peoples Front (NPF) with immediate effect. The emergency meeting was attended by all office bearers of the BJP Wokha divisional unit and assembly segments. BJP Phek divisional unit general secretary, Arha in a press statement said that BJP Phek district unit also stands dissolved as per the decision taken by state executive meeting May 18, to merge with the NPF. BJP unit general secretary stated that this decision to dissolve the unit en bloc was taken in the greater interest of the Naga people and also to strengthen the NPF led DAN government under the leadership of state chief minister, Neiphiu Rio.
