Opposition Naga Peoples Front (NPF), the single largest political party in Nagaland, has dismissed NDPP claim that 14 legislators are set to join the two allies of the ruling coalition and said there was no division in the party.

The constituents of the ruling Peoples are the NDPP (17), the BJP (12), the JD(U)(I), the (NPP) (2) and an Independent. One seat is vacant following the death of one in the 60-member house.

Addressing the 3rd meeting of the party Tuesday, leader T R Zeliang dismissed the claim of the NDPP that out of the 26 legislators, seven each were willing to join the NDPP and the BJP and said that there was no division of any sort within the NPF.

On the alleged move of Zeliang to dethrone the NDPP-led government, the former said, "The has authorised me while the party has authorised our to take decision on forming a and any such decision would be a collective decision."

"is possible anytime but we have to provide stable government for development and progress and also work to achieve to the vexed Indo-Naga political problem," he said.

Appealing to party workers and leaders to be cautious in their utterances on state political issues, Zeliang said, "We will not form unless and until we are confident of providing a stable government, unlike the present government which is insecure to the extent that they are even scared of their own shadows."

"We are not in a hurry because patience is the best medicine to achieve the target," he said.

He said the PDA government was shaky because it had failed to keep its promises.
