The Naga People’s Front, a coalition partner in Manipur, has decided to withdraw support to the BJP-led coalition government in Manipur.

The NPF, which has four MLAs in Manipur, is also a ruling partner in Nagaland government and the Centre.

The State unit NPF president Marung Makunga said, “The decision will be made public shortly after the Nagaland polls”.

At a recent public function in Chandel district, Chief Minister Biren Singh had asked the NPF members in the Autonomous District Council to join the BJP. The NPF leaders took umbrage at the remarks, saying Mr. Biren had shown disrespect to the NPF.

Some NPF leaders have alleged that even after completing one year, the government has done nothing for the hills and that corruption is rampant.
