Kohima: The Democratic Alliance of Nagaland (DAN) government, headed by Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio, has completed three years of its second term in office.

"As we complete the third year of our second term in office, it is also the time to do some introspection and question ourselves on our achievements and contributions," Rio said at a programme to mark the occasion on Saturday evening.

The DAN government had hived off any threat to its survival after all its constituents merged with the main partner Naga people's Front (NPF).

Two NCP legislators and two BJP MLAs had joined the NPF last year, taking the strength of the regional party to 42 in the 60 member state Assembly.

However, the NPF decided to retain the nomenclature DAN even without having any alliance partner.

The NPF-led DAN came into power in 2003 ending 10 years of Congress rule in Nagaland.

Expressing gratitude to all elected members of the ruling regime for reposing their unflinching support and faith in his leadership, the CM pointed out that in the past eight years, the ruling dispensation faced enormous challenges but managed to remain safe.
