Meghalaya Congress legislator Danggo may quit Assembly to join ruling NPP

Shillong, June 11 (UNI) Senior Congress legislator Martin Danggo is likely to quit as member of the Meghalaya Assembly and joined the ruling National People’s Party.
“Danggo will put in his papers as member of the Meghalaya Assembly and quit from the primary membership of the Congress in a few days time,” Danggo’s confidant told UNI on condition of anonymity.
However, the confidant said that senior Congress leaders of the Ranikor Constituency are expected to join the NPP tomorrow in presence of Chief Minister Conrad Sangma, who is also the national president of the NPP.
Conrad along with Deputy Chief Minister, Prestone Tynsong, Home Minister James Sangma and other ministers as well as NPP leaders are visiting Ranikor tomorrow.
Danggo, a former Public Works Department minister has been in touch with the NPP leadership and had expressed his keen desire to join the NPP
after he was upset with the then Congress leadership even before going to the Assembly polls over the non-creation of the civil sub division.
asked if the visit of the NPP delegation to Ranikor is a kind preparation for Danggo and his supports to come to the NPP, Tynsong gave a sarcastic reply saying, “the visit to Ranikor is to get more energy.”
He even asked media persons to also visit Ranikor on Tuesday and get first hand information from there.
The NPP at present now has 20 MLAs, while the opposition Congress has 21 MLAs in the 60-member Assembly.
The NPP is leading the coalition Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government in the state with the support of UDP, PDF, BJP, HSPDP, NCP and Independents.
