Congress Meghalaya MLA joins BJP, says I'm a prodigal son who returned

On December 30 previous year, in a major blow to the Mukul Sangma-led Congress government in Meghalaya, five of its MLAs, including former deputy chief minister Rowell Lyngdoh, resigned from the state Assembly to join the National People's Party (NPP), an ally of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

Veteran Congress legislator and former chief of the Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC), Dr DD Lapang on Tuesday trained guns on former congress leader Prestone Tynsong over "anti-congress" and "anti-Mukul" statements.

The other five former Congress legislators - Rowell Lyngdoh, Prestone Tynsong, Coming One Ymbon, Sniawbhalang Dhar and Ngaitlang Dhar - along with former United Democratic Party legislator Remington Pyngrope and Independents Hopeful Bamon and Stephanson Mukhim, will formally join NPP on January 4 at a public meeting. Mr chief minister, your days are numbered. Why not mobilise 2-3 ministers and make a big shout.

Faced with exodus of key party members, the beleaguered party is trying to put up new faces in its preparation for the Assembly elections, 2019 District Council elections and Lok Sabha elections.

In UP, BJP bagged in 2014, 71 of 80 and in MP 27 out of 29; but, just in case the party is not able to repeat these feats, BJP wants to expand to regions and states where it has yet not made inroads. "It is a collective responsibility. They have kept Vincent Pala as the working president".

Later, when Rahul Gandhi became the Congress president, Dr Lapang also met him and told that as party president the workload would be heavy since the assembly elections is nearing and with his age and health problems it may not be possible.

"The work for the elections is extraordinarily hard and has to work around the clock", he said. He expressed confidence that the BJP would be part of the new government to be formed after the Assembly polls.

"Those who are not comfortable have gone away and those who went on their own could not take lock, stock and barrel with them as the original Congress supporters are there", Lapang who was removed from the party president post last week, said.
