SHILLONG, Sept 19 - Former Meghalaya MLA Constantine Lyngdoh passed away at the Shillong Civil Hospital on Wednesday. Born in 1963, the one-time legislator had defeated former Chief Minister DD Lapang on his home turf, Nongpoh, in the 1993 Assembly elections, which earned him the sobriquet of �giant killer�.

Lyngdoh was a political greenhorn when he contested the polls on the ticket of Hill State People�s Democratic Party. He defeated Lapang, a political heavyweight, by 1,095 votes. Lyngdoh had polled 7,474 votes as against Lapang�s 6,379. It was an upset defeat for Lapang because prior to that election, Lapang had become the Chief Minister for the first time in 1992.

That was the only time Lapang, a four-time MLA, lost the seat. Assembly Speaker Metbah Lyngdoh has expressed deep sorrow at Lyngdoh�s demise. � Staff Correspondent
