Former Nagaland Home Minister Yanthungo Patton on Wednesday resigned as member of the assembly.

Chief Minister T.R.Zeliang sacked Patton and five others ministers from his ministry last month to facilitate reconciliation between the two wrangling factions of the ruling Naga People’s Front.

In his resignation letter submitted to Assembly Speaker Imtiwapang Aier, Patton stated that he voluntarily tendered his resignation, as member of the assembly, with immediate effect. However, Aier is yet to accept Patton’s resignation.
