Cong moves no-trust motion against Meghalaya Govt

By Staff Correspondent

SHILLONG, Nov 10 - The Opposition Congress today moved a No-Confidence Motion against the NPP-led Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) Government in the Meghalaya Assembly.

Admitting the motion, Meghalaya Assembly Speaker Metbah Lyngdoh listed it for debate and subsequent voting on Wednesday after the Question Hour.

The no-trust motion was moved by Congress leader Mukul Sangma, along with ten other MLAs belonging to the party. The Opposition legislators said they have lost confidence in the NPP-led Government.

�The council of ministers led by Chief Minister, Conrad Sangma has failed to address multiple and critical issues affecting the well being of the people as a whole,� the letter signed by the Opposition Congress legislators stated.

�The government has failed to protect the interest of the state as a whole and failed in all fronts,� the Congress added.

After the motion was admitted, Chief Minister Conrad Sangma chaired a crucial meeting of the MDA and issued a whip, directing all members to be present in the Assembly during the No-Confidence Motion.

Sangma said that some ministers who had earlier tested positive for COVID-19, had not been attending the current session of the Assembly. The Chief Minister added though they had since recovered from the disease, they had not attended the House session as they felt weak.

�Tomorrow being an important day, they have all been asked to turn up and in spite of their health condition, they will attend tomorrow�s session,� Sangma stated.

Meanwhile, the Leader of Opposition, Mukul Sangma, said nobody can predict the outcome (of the no-trust motion). �We cannot predict how the House will behave. The end results will unfold only when issues are placed and members deliberate on them,� he added.

The Opposition Congress has 19 members in the House of 60.
