War of words between Congress and NPP over Ranikor continues in Meghalaya

Jun 23, 2018 17:41

The Meghalaya Congress has ridiculed the National People’s Party (NPP) for its statement on a possible jolt which will hit the former in a month and a half time even as it exuded confidence of holding the party together.

“The congress is ready to face any threats and will ensure a win in the Ranikor by poll as it had always been a congress bastion,”  said Congress Spokesperson Zenith Sangma said here on Saturday.

The NPP state President, WR Kharlukhi on Friday had stated that the congress should be ready for yet another big jolt to hit them in one and a half month time. He also stated that both NPP and its coalition partner UDP would field candidates that will reduce the congress to garner a minuscule number of votes. “We have a well thought strategy in place,” Kharlukhi had said.

The Congress, on the other hand, is not ready to give up Ranikor seat easily. “Ranikor is a congress bastion and thus congress will win,” said Sangma.

Talking about the NPP and it’s coalition partner fielding their candidates to ensure that the congress garners only a minuscule amount of vote, Zenith said that the congress has its own arithmetic in place and will emerge triumphant in the by poll. He further said that leaders come and go but the party remains and nobody is above the party.

About former Congress leader, MM Danggo leaving the party, Zenith said that it has done the party more good than harm and as far as NPP claims were concerned of growing in strength with Danggo joining them and others from the congress camp sending feelers, Zenith said that the congress would wait and watch.
