BJP is not a ‘Strong Component’
The Meghalaya fragment of Congress party Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) has shown their confidence in winning the assembly elections to be held next year.
The Chief of the Committee DD Lapang while interacting with the media said “Modi wave” would not work in Meghalaya. The statement came after the speculation made by the people over PM Modi’s impact on the state.
BJP recently indicated that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would be one of the main star campaigners for the saffron party’s candidates when the state goes for the elections.
In a wake to this, the MPCC chief has presented the part of the party in the Assembly polls. He further said the Congress did not see the Opposition political parties as its “strong opponent” in the elections.“When I look at the past record (including the 2013 elections), there is none,” Lapang said, adding that it was too early to say now how many seats they would be able to win this time.
Apart from this, talking about the National People’s Party in the state that may join the Saffron party in the state as the Centre of the party is in alliance with the BJP in Nagaland Lapang said the Congress “does not see NPP as a threat at all since it is yet to know who the NPP is.”
A few days back the political intellectuals were speculating about the NPP that it would play a big role in the change of government in the state. But MPCC denied any threat to the party from NPP.
