DIMAPUR, March 9 - Mmhonlumo Kikon of BJP has been sworn in as Pro-tem Speaker of Nagaland Assembly by Governor PB Acharya at Raj Bhavan in Kohima on Friday. He was earlier holding the post of Adviser in the TR Zeliang-led NPF Government.

The 1st Budget session of Nagaland Assembly will commence from March 12.

Meanwhile, former Speaker and senior NPF leader Chotisuh Sazo felt Neiphiu Rio will be a BJP remote controlled Chief Minister.

To corroborate his point, Sazo said BJP took six Cabinet Minister rank berths, including Deputy Chief Minister, while Rio-led Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) got only four, adding Rio appears to have already been squeezed hard by BJP. He claimed even Lok Sabha MP seat was also assured to BJP, besides 40 per cent posts in Chief Minister�s Office to them (BJP).

�Going by the trend, it is clear he will be a remote-controlled Chief Minister,� Sazo was quoted as having said by a local news agency.

The former Speaker also described as �extra-constitutional� the manner in which the first time open-air swearing-in ceremony for the new NDPP-BJP Government headed by Rio was organised at Kohima local ground on Thursday.

Nowhere in the history of the swearing-in ceremony of any government had there been any other activities and programmes other than playing the �National Anthem� two times � when the Governor arrives and when the swearing-in ceremony is over, he said. But songs and Chief Minister�s speech were among others that were delivered during the swearing-in ceremony, Sazo added.
