Meghalaya also goes to NDA, Conard Sangma to be CM

A security personal stands guard at a polling in Ri Bohi during the State Assembly elections on Tuesday

The National People's Party (NPP) President Conrad Sangma will be the new chief minister of Meghalaya and the swearing-in of the new ministers will take place on March 6.

"NPP has agreed to the condition of the three regional parties and I will be the chief minister", Conrad said.

- He did his schooling from St Columbas School, New Delhi and went on to pursue MBA in University of Pennsylvania and Imperial College, University of London. "But there are circumstances and so we will have to be here", he said on Sunday.

NPP, reduced to just two seats in 2013, has put up a strong show winning 19 seats in Meghalaya. But the BJP came to power in both states with the help of smaller parties and Independents. "We are not a big player here. We have come to express our support to the regional parties to form a non-Congress Government", Rijiju told PTI after coming out of Roy's residence here.

The BJP will form its government along with its ally the National People's Party (NPP) together in Meghalaya, though the Congress won the largest number of seats.

With this twist, Meghalaya is the third state in less than a year after Goa and Manipur where the Congress has not been able to forge a post-poll alliance with any of the regional parties despite emerging as the single largest party. The ruling NPF won 27 seats in Nagaland but pre-poll allies NDPP with 16 seats and BJP with 12 have the upper hand.

Earlier, six MLAs of United Democratic Party chose to extend their support to the alliance.

After hectic parleys, Conrad assured every regional outfit the United Democratic Party, Hill State People's Democratic Party and the People's Democratic Front besides the BJP a share in the coalition government.

Mr Acharya said he had asked Mr Rio to submit the signatures of all 32 MLAs supporting him by Monday.

It is learnt that Mukul Sangma have made an attempt to persuade the UDF president to change his stand on support to the NPP which is part of BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) at the centre.

Earlier, there were dramatic scenes at the residence of former chief minister Donkupar Roy, the leader of the UDP which won six seats, as Conrad and outgoing Chief Minister Mukul Sangma reached nearly at the same time to seek his support for forming the government.
