Naga People’s Front (NPF), the opposition party on Tuesday served show cause notices to six of its MLAs, a day after they extended their support to the Lok Sabha election candidate fielded by the ruling People's Democratic Alliance (PDA).

"You have been found hobnobbing with the political opponent of the NPF, which has also been corroborated through the local newspapers on March 26, whereas you have been elected to the 13th Nagaland Legislative Assembly from NPF ticket. While receiving the party ticket, you had signed a pledge to remain faithful and loyal to the NPF constitution and be subjected to the party discipline. But your movement and activities is absolutely a total breach of party discipline and it is inimical to the party principle," a statement issued by NPF said.

The ruling PDA, comprising National Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP), BJP and JD (U) has named sitting MP, Tokheto Yepthomi. Election to contest the lone Lok Sabha seat will be held on April 11. 

Sources said the move by the MLAs comes after the opposition party did not name its candidate and decided to back Congress candidate. MNF has 26 MLAs in the 60-member Assembly.

The MLAs has been asked to reply within seven days.
