Kohima: The Naga People`s Front (NPF) is hopeful of winning the Outer Manipur parliamentary seat and the lone Lok Sabha seat in Nagaland but it is not expecting much in the Arunachal Assembly elections, a top NPF leader said.
NPF President Shurhozelie Liezietsu said "we are hopeful of winning the Outer Manipur seat."

"So this time will be the first time for our party to send two MPs (Outer Manipur and Nagaland) to Lok Sabha," he said.

NPF is contesting for the first time in Manipur and has nominated former minister Soso Lorho in the Naga-inhabited constituency.
