  • Conrad Sangma to be next CM of Meghalaya

    National People’s Party (NPP) is all set to form the new government in Meghalaya with the support of BJP, three regional parties and a independent MLA.

  • Big task ahead for Sangma

    The head of the National People’s Party (NPP) Conrad Sangma, who has been elected as the 12th Chief Minister to run the show and successfully manage a ‘coalition government’, will have an interesting portfolio of affairs to manage.

    It has been more than 10 years since an alliance government has been formed especially consisting mainly of parties in this hill state in the country.

    Meghalaya is especially known for being ‘unstable’ as far as the political environment is concerned. This has been the case years and years before, since 1972.

    Previously, this state was under the reign of the Congress ruler Mukul Sangma.

    It does look like Conrad has a challenging environment to deal with.

    The Meghalaya Progressive Alliance (MPA) had to be shut down only a year after its birth, which was in the year 2008 due to certain differences. In 2009, there was President’s rule imposed in Meghalaya. As per Sangma, he has said that the NNP win was born out of the association with the ruling party. Sangma became the president of the NNP in the year 2016 after he lost his father, who is former chief minister Purno Sangma.
