NDPP-BJP alliance to continue in 2023 Assembly polls: Along

Correspondent

Nagaland BJP president and minister Temjen Imna Along on Monday reaffirmed that the BJP Central leadership was committed to the current alliance with NDPP and would continue to do so even for the 2023 assembly polls.
Putting all speculations to rest, Along, while talking to media persons after casting his vote for the Presidential polls here, said his party will not be contesting the 2023 poll on its own but continue the seat sharing formula with the NDPP.
He said “The central leaders have full trust the present coalition.”
It may be noted that the NDPP and BJP had announced a pre-poll alliance before the 2018 State Assembly polls and contested the elections on a seat-sharing basis of 40:20.
On the other hand, highly placed sources informed that there may be seat adjustments for the 2023 polls in some constituencies between NDPP and BJP, based of mutual understanding.
