Opposition Congress in Nagaland has called a six-hour bandh tomorrow in all district headquarter towns of the state protesting alleged corruption, nepotism and gross irregularities in several sectors in the DAN government.

NPCC leaders said the bandh would be observed from 6 am since the state government had "failed" to stop corruption in various levels of administration.

Besides, the party alleged that a former "tainted" minister in the DAN government had been nominated as Rajya sabha candidate for the March 26 RS election.

There were also gross irregularities in appointments of school teachers and misuse of central funds for various rural development schemes, including NREGA.
