The Congress and the NDPP have begun their election campaign for the lone Lok Sabha seat. While the incumbent MP, Tokheho Yepthomi is pitted against veteran Congress leader, K L Chishi, the NPF has decided not to contest, rather support the secular (Congress) candidate. No doubt, the NDPP is backed by the BJP and the JD (U) and it has even gained support of 7 NPF MLAs, which is very interesting. Only time will tell what will happen to the 7 NPF MLAs for going against the party line and supporting the opposition candidate in the polls.
