He expressed his appreciation and gratitude to a horde of people, including the well-wishers for their support, the electorate who voted for him and the chief minister of Nagaland for ‘having confidence on him that could possibly help him represent the people of the state in the Parliament and putting him up as the consensus candidate of the PDA’.

“I thank all the legislators of the Nagaland Legislative Assembly for their support. I also thank the Ex. Legislators and Former Nagaland Assembly Election candidates who have supported me. I would also like to thank all the rank and file of PDA alliance and Coalition Parties (NDPP, BJP, NCP, NPP, NPF, LJP(RV), RPI(A), JD) led by their respective state presidents and the high commands,” read the acknowledgement.
