More exodus to BJP in the offing before polls

Staff Reporter

BJP secretary and co-in-charge of north east Rituraj Sinha held a meeting with several prominent politicians from across political parties at Niathu Resorts here Thursday. Nagaland Rajya Sabha MP Phangnon Konyak and some state party functionaries were also present sources told Nagaland Post.
The meeting appears to have caused a minor controversy since senior leaders of the state BJP revealed that the state unit leadership including BJP national secretary in-charge of Nagaland, Nalin Kholi were not aware of the meeting.
There were several prominent politicians mainly from NDPP who also met with Rituraj which included a sitting NDPP legislator, former NPF legislator of 26 Aonglenden assembly constituency Toshipokba, a seniormost functionary of NDPP and former NDPP members who have resigned from the party.
Sources clarified to Nagaland Post that those who met with Rituraj were on exploratory mission but were most likely to take the final call after announcement expected sometime in January 15,2023.
