Meghalaya Congress to write to high command on the five suspended MLAs


The Congress, which has suspended five MLAs in Meghalaya for allegedly supporting the ruling BJP-led Meghalaya Democratic Alliance, said on Tuesday that it would soon submit a report to the party high command asking them to Failed to respond to show cause notice sent.


Meghalaya PCC chief Vincent H. Pala said the ten-day deadline given to the five MLAs expired on February 24 but he has not yet given a reason.


The five were arrested by the AICC on February 14 in support of the BJP-backed MDA government and its involvement in anti-party activities.


In view of this, we will meet on March 4 to discuss the matter and submit a report to the AICC accordingly.


Pala said the next course of action would be decided by the AICC.


After the suspension of Congress MLAs, CLP leader Ampareen Lyngdoh had said that the five MLAs would take a collective decision on the issue.


When contacted, he said, “We will be back to you in 12 days.”


Sources said that the suspended MLA has already decided that he will not respond to the show cause notice as he has made up his mind to contest re-election from other political parties. Four of the five other MLAs have been given government appointments.


PT Sawkami and Mohandro Wrapping have been appointed co-chairs of Meghalaya New and Renewable Energy Development Agency and Mayralborn  Syiem has been appointed co-chairman of Meghalaya Industrial Development Corporation. Kimfa Marbaniang has been made co-chairman of the Meghalaya Government Construction Company, according to a notification issued last week.
