KOHIMA, June 25 - A day after its lone legislator, Kaito G Aye, joined the ruling Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) in Nagaland, the JD(U) State unit today accused the NDPP of poaching its MLA.

JD(U) Nagaland president Senchumo NSN Lotha told a press conference here that �Aye along with some members of the JDU were swayed and lured by temporary materialistic gains�.

Lotha claimed that Aye may have defected to the NDPP but the JD(U) Nagaland unit is totally intact. �The JD(U) feels relieved for being cleaned of garbage which was stinking,� the JD(U) State president said, adding that �opportunists and power mongers will always find a hole to perforate their fingers and throw the dirt at others�.

Aye, along with his supporters and some other leaders, joined the NDPP in the presence of Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio on Monday.

Lotha said the JD(U) Nagaland unit would steadfastly work to achieve the party�s motto of getting Nagaland free of the three C�s � crime, corruption and communalism � under the leadership of its national president, Nitish Kumar.

On continuing with the ruling alliance in Nagaland, Lotha said: �We joined the People�s Democratic Alliance (PDA) considering the natural alliance between the BJP and the JD(U) at the Centre, and therefore, we will not pull out of the alliance in the State till the time BJP is comfortable with it.� � PTI
