Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) chief DD Lapang has expressed confidence that “Modi wave’ would not work here in Meghalaya which is set to go for the Assembly elections next year.

Speaking to journalists here on Tuesday, Lapang said “Modi wave’ would not have any impact on the state.

The statement from the MPCC chief has come in the wake of BJP indicating that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would be one of the main star campaigners for the saffron party’s candidates when the state goes for the elections.

He further said the Congress did not see the Opposition political parties as its “strong opponent” in the elections.

“When I look at the past record (including the 2013 elections), there is none,” Lapang said, adding that it was too early to say now how many seats they would be able to win this time.

On NPP’s claims that it would play a big role in the change of government in the state, Lapang said the Congress “does not see NPP as a threat at all since it is yet to know who the NPP is.”

“I am not going to judge on the performance of other parties but the records in the past indicate that the Congress has always been the single-largest party. So where is the scope of being challenged,” the veteran leader said.

He also said the alliance of the regional parties against the Congress only sent a message that Congress was the tallest.
