6 Meghalaya legislators form UPF
By Nagaland Post 06-Aug-2019
All the four legislators are part of the ruling Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) led by the National People’s Party.
The PDF has four MLAs including two ministers – Hamletson Dohling, Banteidor Lyngdoh, Gavin Mylliem and Jason S. Mawlong. Lone NCP legislator, Saleng A. Sangma and Independent legislator Lambor Malngiang are also part of the newly formed sub-alliance (UPF).
Sangma and Malangiang had formed the Meghalaya United Forum (MUF), but no other legislators joined them. Sangma said that after the formation of the UPF, the Meghalaya United Forum formed by him and Lambor has ceased to exist. “We formed this new alliance together with an objective to work together within the government and raise issues concerning the state so that a louder voice could be raised and heard. We welcome other MLAs too to be part of this sub-alliance,” Sangma said.
The NPP alone has 21 MLAs in the MDA government. The BJP having two MLAs also supported the MDA government. The opposition Congress has 19 members while lone MLA of the KHNAM, Adelbert Nongrum did not side either with the government or Opposition.
