SHILLONG, Sept 16 - Meghalaya Assembly today did not take up the �No-Confidence Motion� against Speaker Abu Taher Mondal after Opposition member, James K Sangma from National People�s Party (NPP) withdrew the notice of the motion.
Mondal, presiding over the last day of the Autumn session of the Assembly, told the House that he received a letter from James K Sangma through the Assembly Secretariat that he has withdrawn the No-Confidence Motion against him.
Sangma earlier in his notice sought the removal of Speaker from the chair citing the Speaker�s inability to construct the new Meghalaya Assembly. The old Assembly building was gutted in a fire several years back.
Mondal from Congress scripted history on March 11, 2013 after he became the first non-indigenous legislator to assume the Speaker�s chair.
