The official shared that, “by age, he is very young, but he is dynamically great that no politicians can ever do, infact in entire North East India so far”. This shows that there is nothing by one’s age, but of calibre, opined a senior citizen.
Few are of the view that he can be called as Number One in current position; but to make things interesting, he is only regarded to be the next, observed another source. According to reports, there could be rivals of shorts to rule the party, but has rubbished the claim saying it is common to other parties too.
Few political observers believe that Nagaland can be changed with the right candidate leading from the front – real development will take place then. With the current Number Two position, many believe that besides bringing projects from New Delhi, Nagaland will also see more changes taking place in grassroot, which is important, it observed.
However, they were tight lip on who would be the following numbers including the hotspot of being in No.1.
