Conrad Sangma to form govt in Meghalaya, Congress hopes dashed”

"We want the NPP to take the initiative and the BJP will provide full cooperation".

"We have offered formulas to the UDP for working together - either the UDP should lead the government or share power for two-and-half years".

Sources said Patel and Nath would land in Shillong post noon and will hold discussions with party leaders there, including the outgoing Chief Minister, Mukul Sangma. The oath-taking ceremony of newly elected Meghalaya CM Conrad Sangma took place in Shillong.

He twisted the hands of BJP President Amit Shah with his NPP and friendly NPF (Naga People's Front) unit of Manipur. A major achievement of the previous chief minister, Mukul Sangma of the Congress, was that he could ensure political stability in the state for over eight years.

After failing to win over allies to form a government in Meghalaya, Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday hit out at the BJP for "usurping" power through "proxy" by using "big money" to create an opportunistic alliance.

National People's Party (NPP) with the support of BJP and other smaller parties will form the next government in the north-eastern state of Meghalaya. "We are there to facilitate and we are doing that to ensure that there is a non-Congress government in Meghalaya", said Sarma. Since 1976, when the ruling APHLC faction in Meghalaya merged with Congress during Emergency, it is Congress which has largely ruled the state, often through coalition governments.

BJP National General Secretary Ram Madhav said the new Meghalaya government will be sworn in on March 6. One independent MLA and a JDU legislator also extend support in government formation.

The Chief Minister allotted Water Resources, Tourism, Excise and Home Guards and Civil Defence to senior United Democratic Party (UDP) legislator Metbah Lyngdoh. The BJP, which drew a blank in the last elections, got two seats.

He returned to electoral politics in 2016, when the Tura Lok Sabha seat fell vacant following the sudden death of his father due to a heart attack. Though it sailed with NDPP into the election, BJP is now in a position to decide who is a better partner in the long run.

The Hills State Peoples Democratic Party (HSPDP) has won two seats in the election, but its president has lost to an independent candidate by only 76 votes.
