Meghalaya Democratic Alliance Will Provide Better Governance, Says Rajnath Singh”

Shillong: Union Home Minister, Rajnath Singh on Tuesday exuded confidence that the newly formed NPP-led, Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) with Conrad Sangma as the Chief Minister will weather the test of time and turn out to be a strong coalition in Meghalaya.

Former Nagaland Chief Minister and Lok Sabha member from Nagaland, Neiphu Rio, who was also present on the occasion, hinted that an NDPP and BJP-led Government will be sworn in Nagaland on Thursday. "We are clear on our agenda of good governance, many sectors need to be looked into", said Sangma. "Real challenge and work starts today. All MLAs of different political parties must work together and in that we may face several challenges but we are confident to overcome these hurdles", Mr Sangma told reporters.

The BJP, with just two seats, outmanoeuvred the Congress - the single largest party - in cobbling up numbers to form the coalition government.

The NPP, which secured 19 seats on its own, has the backing of six United Democratic Party (UDP) legislators, four People's Democratic Front (PDF) MLAs, two each from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Hill State People's Democratic Party (HSPDP) MLAs and an independents, taking the combined strength of the alliance to 34.

Meanwhile, the HSPDP, a partner in the new coalition government in Meghalaya, has already made a discordant note as it expressed its unhappiness over the way ally UDP bulldozed its way to name Conrad as the chief minister without consulting it. His youngest son, Conrad Sangma, took over the party after his death in 2016.

Conrad Sangma is the 12th Chief Minister of Meghalaya.

Conrad Kongkal Sangma has begun his innings as the head of a non-Congress government in Meghalaya 10 years after his father Purno Agitok Sangma stitched one. "There was a perception that only Congress party can survive in the north-east but now that BJP has gained victory here that perception will change", Union Minister Rajnath Singh said.
