Shillong: The National People’s Party (NPP) on Saturday exuded confidence that the party would form the next government in Meghalaya saying the people of the Northeastern state were looking for a change.
As the results for the February 27 elections indicated a hung house for the 60-member Meghalaya assembly, NPP president Conrad Sangma said his party would be able to form the next government with the help of other like-minded parties.
“We are hopeful that we will be able to form the government. People are fed up with the corrupt Congress government and looking for a change,”
Sangma, son of veteran leader late PA Sangma, said results were still coming but the NPP will be in a position to form the government with the help of other parties.
