NPF meets to finalise Nagaland CM

Nagaland chief minister TR Zeliang formally is resigning on Monday to pave the way for finalizing a new successor amid the ongoing logjam that paralyzes normal life across the north eastern state.

In a statement issued immediately after he arrived from Delhi, Zeliang convened an emergency meeting if the NPF legislative body meeting at the State Banquet Hall In Kohima at 10 in the morning.

The meeting is electing Zeliang’s successor. Then this would be followed by the meeting of DAN legislators who would endorse the new chief ministerial candidate.

Then the legislators are set to rush to the Raj Bhawan where Zeliang is putting in his papers and his successor is staking claims to form the government.

NPF president and former chief minister Neiphu Rio are contenders for the hot seat while many MLAs who have been holding marathon meeting in Kaziranga have arrived in Kohima in the morning.
