Guwahati: Meghalaya voters have thrown up a hung House even as the Congress, which has ruled the frontier state for 10 years, emerged as the single largest party winning 21 seats. The Congress was followed by its arch rival National People’s Party (NPP) with  19 seats out of the 59 seats in which voting took place on February 27.

As the Congress rushed senior leaders Ahmed Patel and Kamal Nath to Shillong to work out possible tie-ups with independents to form a government, NPP president Conrad Sangma, son of veteran leader late P.A. Sangma, exuded confidence that his party will form the next government with the help of other like-minded parties.

 

Meghalaya may get its first woman Chief Minister with the party contemplating to float the name of former Union minister Agatha Sangma, daughter of P.A. Sangma. The NPP fought the elections on its own but it has an understanding with the BJP and some regional parties.
