Share post:


There will be a straight fight between the Congress-I and the APHLC for the lone Rajya Sabha seat from Meghalaya. The Congress-I candidate is its Working President, Mr J E Tariang, and the opposition nominee is Mr E B Lyngdoh.

The Congress-I led coalition has 37 members and the opposition has 22. The election takes place on March.

Meanwhile, Mr J B Tariang has said that Mr D D Pugh, the former Chief Minister, had applied to Captain W A Sangma for party ticket. But since he had approached, a bit too late his case was not considered. Asked if Mr Pugh has joined the party or not, Mr Tariang said he was not sure. “He might have applied to the Chief Minister,” he said.
