Together, as the newly constituted Garo Hills Democratic Coalition (GHDC), we will take over GHADC to serve our tribal people of Garo Hills.”

The NPP is looking to form the Executive Council in the GHADC after winning 11 seats. The MDCs have grouped together as – Garo Hills Democratic Coalition (GHDC).

It may be mentioned that the coalition comprises of 11 NPP MDCs, 3 independents and 1 GNC MDC.
