BJP to be part of Megahalaya's new Govt. with NPP

Meghalaya CM Mukul Sangma

Conrad will be sworn in on Tuesday.

Earlier, 58 newly elected members to the 10th Meghalaya Assembly took oath before Pro-tem Speaker Timothy Dalbot Shira at a special session in Shillong.

Metbah Lyngdoh, Lahkmen Rymbui and Kyrmen Shylla of the United Democratic Party as well as Banteidor Lyngdoh and Hamletson Dohling of the People's Democratic Front also took oath as Cabinet ministers.

However, not everyone is welcoming this alliance of parties seeking to form a government in Meghalaya. "We have come to express our support to the regional parties to form a non-Congress government", Rijiju said. Since polling on one seat was cancelled due to the death of a candidate, Conrad Sangma for now only needs 30 members for a majority with the current strength of the House at 59.

The task was the first tightrope walk for the young CM who is heading a six-party coalition government. The BJP-NDPP combine has 30 seats and is backed by a JD-U MLA and an Independent. The chief minister has hinted that the alliance "will find out areas where there are contradictions" and "quarantine them" or "figure out how to resolve them".

The BJP, which drew a blank in the last elections, got two seats.

Sangma stated that the NPP was forming the government courtesy BJP.

State president Biplab Deb is the front runner in chief minister's race.

"Whoever takes the charge as the political chief executive of the state, the responsibility that will be vested upon him, is tremendous and will require lots of support from everyone", he told reporters.

Conrad said his government would come up with a budget that will be the best for the state. "In Tripura also the same result will be reflected". "You will notice that in the coming election in Tripura the people will vote for Narendra Modi's development bringing an end to Manik Sarkar's tenure". After that meeting, they will submit their report to the BJP parliamentary board.

The Congress too tried to woo UDP for the formation of the government in the state in the wake of the fractured mandate that emerged on 3 March. The NPP leader made a dramatic turnaround in the Assembly Election and was selected as the Chief Minister. NPP has won 19 seats in assembly polls.
