Invite us to form Govt, NPF to Governor

Dimapur, May 18: The Naga People’s Front (NPF) has urged the Governor of Nagaland, PB Acharya to invite Opposition leader TR Zeliang and his party to form the Government in Nagaland at the earliest by applying the same yardstick as in the case of Karnataka.
In a release, the office of the Leader of Opposition in Nagaland said in Karnataka, BJP without having the magic figure is being allowed to form the Government in the name of ‘single largest party’ whereas in Nagaland, NPF party led by TR Zeliang was not allowed to do the same despite being the single largest political party.
“Why wasn’t the NPF sworn in and given 15 days time to prove majority in the floor of the House,” it asked.
The NPF said with 26 members, it was the single largest party in Nagaland but it was not accorded the same privilege, which the BJP party led by BS Yeddyurappa is being given in Karnataka on account of being the single largest party.
“Why should different laws be applied in different states on the same matter,” it asked.
