Dimapur, Feb 10: The Northeast Democratic Alliance (NEDA) convener and Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Thursday held a crucial poll strategy meeting with Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio, Deputy chief minister Y Patton, and state BJP president Temjen Imna Along at the Niathu resort at Chumoukedima in Nagaland.

The major political parties of Nagaland have geared up for the assembly elections and are busy in making poll strategies to get maximum benefits in the elections.

Nagaland will go for polls on February 27 and the result for the 60-member assembly seats will be declared on March 2.

Speaking to media persons, Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio said, “Poll strategy for the upcoming elections was discussed during the meeting. The campaign is on so we have to take strategies and we will have a joint meeting.”

“The parties agreed on a seat distribution formula in the ratio of 40:20. There will be no friendly competition. In terms of seat sharing, we will back the BJP in their seat, and they will back us,” Rio stated.

The saffron party has decided to introduce six new faces who will contest the assembly elections for the first time.

Among the fresh faces is Bashangmongba from Tuensang Sadar 1, Kahuli Sema from Atoizu, Konngam Konyak from Phomching, Panjung Jamir from Tuli, Renbonthung from Wokha, and Sethrongkyu Sangtam from Longkhim Chare.

NDPP and BJP formed the government in 2018 elections and this time also they are contesting the polls together.

Both the parties are hopeful to form the government in Nagaland for the second consecutive time.
