NDPP alleged that the former chief minister along with a relative had met BJP central leadership in New Delhi on September 26 with the intention of and in a desperate bid to occupy the chief ministerial chair again.
NDPP, in a statement that was issued yesterday, also mentioned that Zeliang, during his meet with the BJP leadership, informed that current NPF president Shurhozelie Liezietsu’s term was coming to an end very soon and that a new leader would be elected to replace, following which the party would align with BJP.
