Staff Reporter

BJP national president JP Nadda will be arriving Nagaland on Thursday on a two-day visit.
Besides holding public meeting at Wokha (GMS ground, Old Riphyim) on September 15 and back-to-back meetings with party legislators and partyworkers in Kohima, the BJP president will also be meeting Church leaders of Kohima Ao Baptist Church and Cathedral Catholic Church.
According to party sources, Nadda will also discuss party’s strategy to face the 2023 assembly polls.
On September 16, Nadda will arrive Dimapur and will head to Chümoukedima by autorickshaw, escorted by several hundreds of party workers in autorickshaws.
Though the party was yet to finalize the seats it will be contesting as per the 40 (NDPP):20 (BJP) seat sharing pact with the NDPP, BJP sources said Nadda will be briefed about the constituencies the party planned to set up its candidates.
As reported, there is considerable speculation that the state BJP would want to swap seats with NDPP in some constituencies which were won by NPF in 2018 but now held by NDPP after merger by 21 NPF legislators.
