Nagaland Assembly Election 2018 Updates




Nagaland Assembly Elections 2018

Nagaland Assembly election was held in on Feb 27, 2018. The tenure for the state's assembly ends in March 2018. The election schedule and dates of Nagaland are yet to be announced by the Election Commission. The northeastern state is under the rule of the Nagaland People's Front since 2014. The current Chief Minister is T. R. Zeliang. The main contenders for the upcoming Vidhan Sabha elections in Nagaland are BJP, INC and the evident Nagaland People's Front. The most dominating party of the country presently, BJP has never formed the government in the state.

BJP's Bid to Penetrate in North-East

Although the saffron party does not have any history in the state, it is definitely gearing up to bring the state under its rule, like most of the states in the country. BJP national president Amit Shah is slated to visit Nagaland along with other poll-bound north-eastern states like Meghalaya and Tripura. The party can be seen to be gaining ground after registering twin win in Gujarat and Himalaya Pradesh elections towards the end of 2017, which also made the party a major political force to reckon with.

Although the party does not enjoy much presence in the state, its growing popularity in the country has been felt in the eastern part too. The state has a strong grip of tribal parties and willingness of such parties to join the saffron party is an evidence that the party is a major contender for the election this time.

Congress is Gaining Ground Too

The Congress always had a strong grip over the north-eastern states, which have also been considered as a traditional bastion for the party. The party even held the state under its rule for 10 years from 1993-2003. Presently, it has been holding public rallies and meetings with its various political leaders. The party leaders have also criticized the current government for the misrule and corruption.

The stakes are high for the Nagaland Legislative assembly polls as both BJP and Congress will try to win the election for prestige issues. And the presently ruling party will try to retain its power.
