GUWAHATI:  A team of Nagaland’s ruling constituent the Naga People’s Front (NPF) met members of the EC in New Delhi on Wednesday to try and break the ongoing political deadlock in the state arising out of the leadership issue. Another group led by suspended minister G Kaito is also camping here to meet the “central leadership”.

The NPF is an ally of the BJP-led NDA. Nagaland Chief Minister T R Zeliang, who is currently in New Delhi, on Wednesday called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.  However, the details of the meeting were not known immediately. Zeliang is scheduled to meet Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday to discuss the political crisis in his state.

The Naga People’s Front suffered a virtual split recently after legislators elected suspended minister G Kaito as leader of the NPF Legislature Party (LP) and subsequently staked claim to form the new government under him. The dissident camp, which claims to have 22 of the 38 party legislators on its side, also elected former minister Noke Konyak as party president. But NPF president Shurhozelie Liezietsu described the meeting as illegal.
