HSPDP refuses to replace Ardent

SHILLONG: HSPDP has rejected UDP’s demand for change of leadership of the ruling coalition of KHADC — All Regional Parties Alliance (ARPA).

“We feel that there is no justification in the demand for change of leadership. It has been only five months since the present Executive Committee assumed office,” HSPDP Parliamentary Party (PP) secretary KP Pangngiang told newsmen here on Friday.

On Thursday UDP demanded change of leadership saying that the party was unhappy with the style of functioning of the present CEM Ardent Miller Basaiawmoit.

Pangngiang said that the UDP, a partner of the ruling coalition, has hastily taken the decision to demand for change of leadership.

“The various issues which UDP MDCs have raised can still be resolved across the table,” Pangngiang said.

“It is difficult to judge a person’s caliber in five months time. So, we do not agree with the demand of the UDP leaders,” the HSPDP leader said.

Pangngiang, however, informed that the party was yet to receive any communication from UDP on its demand for election of a new leader.

Meanwhile, KHNAM in its emergency meeting of the Central Executive Committee (CEC) has expressed its willing to act a ‘mediator’ to resolve the present crisis.

“We want ARPA to last its full term,” KHNAM leader Latiplang Kharkongor said.

While stating that the party MDCs have nothing against Basaiawmoit, he, however, urged the UDP MDCs to come forward to amicably resolve their differences with the CEM.
