Kohima, Jan 15: The Nagaland Peoples' Front (NPF), the major constituent of the outgoing Democratic Alliance of Nagaland (DAN) coalition government, has welcomed the Election Commision of India's (ECI) announcement of Assembly elections in the state on March five.

In a release issued here today, NPF press secretary Abu Metha said, ''Despite the undemocratic imposition of President's Rule in Nagaland and the majority still enjoyed by the DAN coalition, the NPF is confident of facing the people's mandate.

''We will go to the people without any apprehension as we have brought about unprecedented development and progress in the state,'' he claimed.

He said those who were responsible for imposition of President's Rule were answerable to the people and called upon all sections of government agencies to contribute towards the conduct of free and fair elections, so that the people would be able to exercise their franchise in an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity.
