Rio BJP's most trusted ally in Nagaland

With Rio's unopposed victory, NDPP - the senior spouse in the alliance with BJP - is jubilant. "NDPP - BJP Alliance is one seat ahead of the polls as Chief Ministerial candidate Neiphiu Rio is declared uncontested," the NDPP tweeted. BJP nationwide normal secretary Ram Madhav tweeted, "Congrats to Neiphiu Rio for getting elected uncontested."

The 67-year-old Rio has emerged as BJP's maximum relied on ally in Nagaland, even though he is steadily seen moving from one celebration to every other. His first foray into politics got here in 1974 when he joined the United Democratic Front. In 1989, he made his debut in the state meeting as a Congress MLA and was once appointed sports activities minister. In 2002, when he was once the house minister in the SC Jamir ministry, the 2 fell out and Rio joined NPF. He led the NPF-BJP combine's battle to defeat Congress in 2003, which was once when Congress was once ultimate heard of in the hill state.
