SHILLONG, Aug 10: The former Deputy Chief Minister of Meghalaya, Rowell Lyngdoh has stated that the entry of the former Chief Executive Member (CEM) of the KHADC, Pynshngain N Syiem in the Ranikor by elections will make the whole exercise all the more interesting.
“The by election will be an interesting one since both UDP and NPP have strong candidates and the contest has heated up more with the entry of PDF,” Lyngdoh had said here on Friday.
Responding to a query, he said that he loves Congress but he had to leave the party due to leadership issues even as he added that he is happy to be a part of NPP now.
The veteran politician also made it clear that he would not contest elections any more but he would be active in politics.
Meanwhile, UDP legislator and Cabinet Minister Metbah Lyngdoh feels that the UDP will win the by poll to the Ranikor seat.
He said that ground reports and the mood are all in favour of the UDP candidate Pius Marwein.
“I have reports from the ground that it is Pius Marwein who has all the support. We will win,” said Lyngdoh.
