On being asked about chief minister Rio to campaign for the NPF party in Manipur, Zeliang said the NPF has invited Rio to campaign for the NPF party in Manipur, because all the 60 members of Nagaland Legislative Assembly is an opposition-less government and all the parties are together now.
Zeliang also said, “In Manipur we have a coalition government with BJP, so we have invited chief minister Rio to join the NPF campaign in Manipur”.
However, Rio has agreed in principle but said that he will consult with his NDPP party workers and hopefully he will join the NPF Manipur election kickoff campaign on February 16.
