Fresh trouble for Rio as NPP withdraws support

KOHIMA: Fresh trouble brews for Neiphu Rio a day before the swearing in ceremony. In a high voltage drama  on Wednesday evening National Peoples Party has withdrawn support to the NDPP led coalition.

In a letter to governor PB Acharya, Nagaland NPP president Ato Yepthomi urged him not to consider the earlier letter of support since there was no consent from the party high command.
NPP earlier promised with go with NDPP-BJP alliance with two of their MLAs. With this, Rio falls short of two MLAs to touch the magic number a day before the swearing in ceremony.
