SHILLONG, Dec 8: Chief Minister Dr Mukul Sangma today said that as legislators are preparing themselves to seek the people’s mandate they should be the reason why people have confidence in the democratic system.

Dr Sangma was appreciating the move of tiol People’s Party (NPP) legislator James K Sangma to withdraw his resolution for removal of the Assembly Speaker during the Winter Session which began today.

“We are going to seek mandate again before the people as respective political parties. We must have plausible reasons to tell the public why we should have faith in the whole democratic system and have confidence in the leadership of the State. We have leaders from across the political spectrum and the people are looking at each one of us. Everyone has the responsibility towards the State and towards the electorate of the State,” Dr Sangma said.

On the withdrawal of resolution to remove the Speaker, the Chief Minister said that deliberations in the House must have a positive outcome.

“From that perspective good sense will prevail that will lead these particular session productively be use and led the debate and deliberations in the August House which is very short very productively use for the larger good of the state,” he added.

When asked about the absence of legislators in the session, he said that various MLAs are busy auditing in their respective constituencies and what promises they have made (for their electorates) and how far they have achieved.

“What more can they do? That is the expected activities of the MLAs,” he quipped.
