    Nagaland: Nagaland Governor PB Acharya met President Pranab Mukherjee in New delhi yesterday and apprised him about the situation in the state where normal life has been crippled for a fortnight due to protests against local bodies polls.

    Official sources said during the 20-minute meeting, Acharya also briefed the President about the steps taken to bring back normalcy.

    Chief Minister TR Zeliang is also in the national capital to meet the central leadership to brief them about the situation in Nagaland.

    Unrest in Nagaland continues as indefinite bandh called by several organisations demanding Zeliang’s resignation continues. They have held Zeliang responsible for the recent incidents of violence and death of two youth in protests against the government’s attempt to hold urban local bodies’ elections with 33 per cent reservation for women.

    In another development, 39 MLAs of the 60 member Nagaland Legislative Assembly met in Kohima on Thursday evening and resolved to support the ruling Naga People’s Front President Shurhozelie Liezietsu as the next Chief Minister and break the deadlock between the agitating groups and the government.
