BJP, allies stake claim to form Meghalaya government

Meghalaya is set to get a non-Congress government with National People's Party (NPP) chief Conrad Sangma meeting Governor Ganga Prasad in Shillong to stake his claim, ANI reported. "We all decided we should form a non-Congress government, and we have decided that NPP government should be formed led by Conrad as the CM", Roy said. I met Governor& I have indicated that I will come back with letters of support from like-minded people.

Union minister and senior BJP leader K J Alphons informed media here today that the Governor has invited Mr Sangma to take oath day Tuesday.

"It will be a Government of the regional political parties to be led by the NPP".

Shillong: The National People's Party (NPP) on Saturday exuded confidence that the party would form the next government in Meghalaya saying the people of the Northeastern state were looking for a change.

With the Congress having serious problems like legislators deserting the party to join hands with the NPP and others, apart from charges of corruption and underdevelopment during its long tenure, the party has not done too badly. People's Democratic Front won four seats, the Nationalist Congress Party and the Khun Hynniewtrep National Awakening Movement (KHNAM) bagged one seat each.

A number of regional parties with the support of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) outsmarted the Congress, which has emerged as the single largest party in recently concluded polls in the race for government formation in Meghalaya. The NPP has won 19 seats, while the UDP has won six seats, and its alliance partner Hill State People's Democratic Party (HSPDP) won two seats on Saturday.

The move comes after Congress was the single-largest party in the state.

Sangma submitted his resignation to Meghalaya Governor Ganga Prasad in Shillong following the assembly election results. Sangma, who is the chief minister since 2010, retained Ampati seat defeating his nearest BJP rival Bakul Ch Hajong by over 6,000 votes.

Meanwhile, Northeast Democratic Alliance (NEDA) convenor Himanta Biswa Sarma too confirmed that Conrad will be the new chief minister of Meghalaya.

The Congress won 21 seats out the 59 that went to polls last month.
