    Currently, the party has just one MLA in Nagaland outside Bihar. It had another MLA in Gujarat, but Chhotubhai Vasava switched over to the Sharad Yadav faction and floated a party called the Bharatiya Tribal Party.

    The party has indicated that it would contest the election on its own. In Bihar, the party is in power with the support of the BJP.
