Kohima, Aug 12: The Democratic Alliance of Nagaland (DAN) comprising Naga People's Front (NPF), BJP and JD(U) today handed over ticket for the Noksen assembly bye-election to C M Chang.
The bye-election is scheduled for September 4.
Addressing the gathering, Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio called upon DAN party workers not to be complacent for being in the ruling front.
He said the DAN alliance has to work harder so that a record margin was established in the winning margin rather than merely winning the bye-election.
Lauding the alliance partners BJP and JD(U) for arriving at a consensus in fielding Chang as the DAN candidate, Rio also said that since NCP was also extending
outside support to the NPF-led DAN government, party leaders should approach the NCP leaders not to field any candidate for the bye-election but to support the consensus candidate.
