5 Cong. MLAs join NPP in Meghalaya

10 members of tribal autonomous district councils also join the party.

Eight MLAs, including five from the Congress, on Thursday joined the BJP ally at the Centre, National People’s Party (NPP), in poll-bound Meghalaya.

All eight MLAs, who recently resigned from the Assembly, joined the NPP at a rally here.

NPP spokesperson James K. Sangma said along with them, 10 members of the tribal autonomous district councils have also formally joined the party. The NPP is headed by Mr. James K. Sangma’s brother Conrad K. Sangma. Both are sons of former Lok Sabha Speaker P.A. Sangma.

The eight MLAs had resigned from the State Assembly on December 29 last year and announced that they would be joining the NPP.
