Despite the recent denial mode by the state Congress, the party appeared to be polarized between those who see a need for change in leadership and those who are not in favour. Reliable sources admitted the quandary within the party comes after a series of electoral setbacks. These sources said pro-changers raised the pitch in view of the embarrassing debacle in the recently concluded parliamentary election and four –by polls in the state assembly. It was learnt that AICC General Secretary in charge of Nagaland and Minister of State for Planning and Parliamentary Affairs V. Narayanasami was briefed about the current mood within the party, on Monday upon his arrival at state capital Kohima. Various organizational set-ups in the Congress on Monday met the AICC General Secretary and explained their positions and saw no way out of the crisis except effect changes in both NPCC and CLP leadership. Though state Congress leaders denied any such demand , names of former chief minister and K.L. Chishi and senior leader I. Imkong were doing rounds for CLP leader and PCC chief respectively. Mr. V. Narayanasami also held a separate meeting with the Congress legislators at Raj Bhavan, Kohima later in the afternoon. It was learnt that altogether 14 Congress legislators met him while five legislators could to attend either due to pre-engagement or were outside the state.
