Welcoming the announcement of Lok Sabha election schedule by Election Commission of India on Sunday evening, chief minister Neiphiu Rio said the ruling PDA alliance would hold a meeting soon to gear up for the polls and decide on the candidature. Speaking to media persons of the sideline of a thanksgiving service programme held at the State Banquet Hall here on Sunday, Rio also thanked people for their constant support and assured to work for them further, adding that the change for better would be seen in the State in a year’s time from now. 

The chief minister also pointed out the main challenge before his government was the Naga political issue, adding that it was “hoping against hope” that solution would come before the Parliamentary polls. But the way the Interlocutor for Naga talks, R.N. Ravi had conveyed to legislators and civil societies, Rio said: “We don’t know the exact way how the Government of India and negotiating party are thinking”. He admitted that, if the solution did not come about, then it would be one of the main problems for Naga society.
