In Nagaland, the Congress party is contesting 25 seats, while the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) and the BJP have agreed to continue with the 2018 seat-sharing formula of 40:20. The BJP opened its account early on February 10 with candidate Kazheto Kinimi winning the Akuluto seat unopposed after his only opponent Congress’ Khekashe Sumi withdrew his candidature. This time around, the State also hopes to get its first woman MLA as parties have invested heavily in the ‘winnability’ of their women candidates, with four women candidates in fray.
Meanwhile, the Congress is eyeing a comeback in both States, fielding candidates in all the 60 constituencies in Meghalaya.
The Polling will kickoff from 7 am to 4 pm. The votes for Meghalaya and Nagaland will be counted on March 2 along with votes that were cast for Tripura Assembly seats on February 16.
