NDPP will not merge with BJP, says Nagaland CM Rio

Talking to the media here, he said that the BJP is the NDPP's electoral ally since 2017 but there is no question of his party merging with it.

The 40:20 seat share in favour of NDPP was not palatable to several leaders and probable dissidents in the Nagaland unit of BJP and especially Patton.
