Ampareen expects smooth sailing for MDA despite NPP’s drubbing in Sohiong Poll

Must read

Shillong, May 15: NPP leader and cabinet minister Ampareen Lyngdoh on Monday said she does not anticipate any complication in Meghalaya Democratic Alliance – 2 government following the adjourned poll in the Sohiong Assembly constituency.

“I do not anticipate that there should be any complication in this government henceforth,” Lyngdoh told reporters here.

United Democratic Party’s Synshar Kupar Roy Lyngdoh Thabah won the Sohiong seat defeating National People’s Party candidate and former legislator Samlin Malngiang by 3422 votes.

Stating that there was a keen contest between the two leading and strong partners of the MDA, Lyngdoh however said, “Now, elections are over so we are going to be moving ahead. There has been no negative or adversary feeling or sharing of experiences between anyone because we now have shown our ability to look at elections as a field job and actually running a government is completely a different assignment, so we have segregated these two assignments.”

She also pointed out that the just concluded Sohiong election took place very shortly after the general election and said, “So there was just a period of about one and a half month…anyways our coalition partner in the ruling dispensation has won the seat so it is okay.”

“We are now looking at going ahead in this coalition partnership and we hope very shortly will be able to sit across the table to discuss our common minimum programme as this election was the deferred election we have to wait for it to complete,” she further added.
