In the ongoing political disturbances in Nagaland, former chief minister T.R. Zeliang on Sunday wrote to Governor P.B. Acharya, claiming stakes to form Government in the state.
Zeliang wrote in the letter to the Governor “34 Naga People’s Front (NPF) MLAs (including me) out of 47, supported me to continue as the Leader of the Legislature Party of NPF,”
“7 Independent MLAs have also affirmed their support in favour of me taking the tally to 41 out of 59 in support of me,” he added
He said the MLA have supported him and have “also authorised him to stake a claim before Governor to form a new NPF-led DAN Govt in Nagaland.”
“I request that I may be invited to form a new NPF-led DAN Government at the earliest,” he wrote.
