The aspiring politicians have started to project themselves, although most of them are not sure of the Party Ticket they will be contesting under, as most of the National and Regional political parties are yet to finalize the full list of candidates.
However, the political rivalry has already shown signs with the second petrol bomb attack, this time on the vehicle of a Congress sitting Member of District Council in the Jaintia Hills Autonomous District Council (JHADC) Hermon Phawa while it was parked at his residence at Wahiajer village in West Jaintia Hills District on September 25, 2017 morning.

2018 MLA polls will witness most candidates with new outfits

In about five months, the Hills state of Meghalaya will be going for a fresh Assembly Elections. In the past, the political parties would have been in full swing campaigning, both the political party and self. But this time, most of the aspirant candidates and the sitting representatives who are seeking re-election are not at all assured as from which party they will seek votes. While a huge number of candidates are sitting on the fence, observing the direction of the wind to take decision, only a handful who are sure of their party tickets have already started the house to house campaign.
The cause for such confusion is greatly due to the well known fact about the dissidents and in-fighting in the ruling Congress Camp, leading to dissolving of four Block Congress Committee (BCC) by Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC), which includes Nartiang BCC, Marang BCC, Mawkynrew BCC and Mawryngkneng BCC.

However at ground zero, there is not much development of infrastructures to remove the main obstacle of the region being landlocked which has given rise to the psychological alienation amongst the Indians who consider North East (NE) so far off and has in turn resulted in the physical separation from the so called Main Land.
