However, chief minister T.R. Zeliang, a former ally of the BJP, has refused to resign and staked claimed to power, saying he is in touch with the national party and his NPF-led alliance has the largest number of 29 MLAs. "There is no question of going back to NPF in forming the government", he said while talking to media persons after meeting former MP and chief ministerial candidate Neiphiu Rio.

When asked how NDPP-BJP was going to run the Government in Nagaland when they won only 30 seats, Sarma disclosed that they already had the support of one JDU MLA and another Independent and that formed the simple majority qualifying to form the Government in Nagaland. Governor P B Acharya asked the Naga People's Front (NPF) and the BJP-Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party to prove their majority. While BJP contested 20 seats, the rest of the 40 candidates were fielded by NDPP.

Due to the imposition of President's rule in the state in 2008, Rio was dismissed as the chief minister.

Rio met the governor along with NDPP president Chingwang Konyak, BJP state president Visasolie Lhoungu, the JD (U) MLA and the Independent legislator.

"The decision to honour our pre-poll alliance with the NDPP will in no way affect the BJP's alliance with the NPF in Manipur".

The subpoena was for Sam Nunberg to turn over thousands of emails between himself and campaign officials and Roger Stone . However, Nunberg's media tour yesterday raises another question, which I raise in my column for The Week .

In the letter jointly written to the BJP president by NPF president Awangbow Newmai and Manipur NPP president Thangminlein Kipgen on March 4, the regional parties not only sought the support of the BJP to form a government in Nagaland but also reminded him of the coalition arrangement among the three parties in Manipur.

"Today I can officially say that we are no longer, we have no track with NPF".

"Rio is a seasoned politician and having good relationships with many leaders in the North East and he will be able to provide a stable Government in Nagaland", Sarma said.

"But later NDPP candidate Namri Nchang was declared victor after recounting of votes without the presence of NPF polling agents and the candidate". He cited two BJP ministers' continuance in his government. The outgoing chief minister then went on to add that the way electorate in Nagaland has given 26 seats to the NPF, "is a factor that has to be taken into account in all political processes including those of development and peace in Nagaland".
