He also questioned the status of implementation of the Naga Accord.
In Nagaland, BJP's emergence as the force that will form the government is in line with the region's centripetal attraction to New Delhi. Although the two parties did not form a pre-poll alliance, they could come together like they did in Manipur past year. "Is this the answer to Meghalaya's aspirations and a stable Government?"
