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.
