NCP asks Congress to dissolve assembly in Meghalaya

Written by: Staff

Shillong, July 23 (UNI) Taking a dig at arch rival Congress, the Nationalist Congress Party today asked it to dissolve the assembly and call fresh elections in Meghalaya.

Criticising the Congress for creating political instability in the state, the NCP alleged that the Congress legislators were determined to ''satisfy personal ambitions and lust for power rather than showing concern for the development of the state and its people.'' ''It is clear that the Congress High Command is no longer in command in Meghalaya and all the tall claims of its leaders, about stable government, have fallen flat on its face,'' an NCP press release, signed by its Working President Dr W R Kharlukhi, said.

Ever since the downsizing of the ministry came into effect, Dr Kharlukhi said every Congress MLA was desperate to become a minister.

He said for this reason, Mr D D Lapang was ousted from power and now within a month, J D Rymbai's tenure seemed to be under great threat.

''Some of the MLAs, who rebelled against Mr Lapang in the hope of getting ministries, are now up in arms against Mr Rymbai as they were not accommodated in the ministry,'' Mr Kharlukhi asserted.
