Meghalaya: BJP yet to join NPP coalition, demands CEM post in GHADC

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has confirmed that it has yet to join the coalition with the National People’s Party (NPP) in the race to the formation of the Executive

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has confirmed that it has yet to join the coalition with the National People’s Party (NPP) in the race to the formation of the Executive Committee to the Garo Hills Autonomous District Council.

The latest development comes in the wake of the conclusion of the GHADC elections in which the NPP won 11 seats to the Congress’ 12.

The BJP, with two MDCs, including the party’s state vice president Bernard Marak, has confirmed that it wants to lead the GHADC as the Chief Executive Member (CEM) and would not support the coalition otherwise.

Earlier, the state president, Ernest Mawrie, had reiterated the party’s thought of not joining the NPP-led coalition over corruption charges.

The NPP leaders, led by Chief Minister Conrad Sangma, met at least three independent winners in the MDC elections.

The three independent candidates, Nathawal S Marak from Wagesik, Arbinstone Marak from Rochonpara and Aktar Ali from Zikzak, had met the Chief Minister at his residence in Tura on Thursday to provide their support to the NPP.

Meanwhile, all seems quiet on the Congress’ front despite the party being the single largest party.
