The Meghalaya Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) Chief, Saleng Sangma urged the party’s higher authorities to emphasize on developmental sectors of the northeastern state, thereby working-on factors which will decide the future of concerned party.
Responding to a query on future of the state during the upcoming 2023 Assembly polls, Sangma asserted that “I cannot predict the future. It depends on how actively the NCP high command supports. We just had the convention in first week of December, there was a national convention amongst the leaders.”
According to Shillong Times report, Sangma stated, “If NCP is serious than its okay as they are in the government in Maharashtra and they have few MPs also and they are raising people issues, the ideology is good and they have done good for farmers and we were planning the same here but the response is little low. I have urged them to be more responsible and activeness is required,” he added.
Keeping in view of the All India Trinamool Congress (AITC)’s push in the state and transforming the party into a principal opposition party, the NCP state president said, “Everywhere I am seeing TMC is rounding up for 2023 election and its 2022. Peoples’ memory last for only three months and they will forget it, so for 2023 whatever rounding up being done by any of the party may not be remembered.”
To a query on whether, he is considering to contest from any other party, the NCP State president said, “Right now it is too early to speak. I can be NPP can be anybody tomorrow. I am not saying that will happen but right now as NCP president, I will stick with NCP.”
