Shillong, Sept 1: In a boost to the ruling newly-formed People’s Democratic Forum (PDF) in the Khasi Autonomous District Council (KHADC), Congress MDC from Pynursla, Jansing Tynsong on Friday pledged his support to Chief Executive Member (CEM) Pynshngainlang N Syiem. In a letter to Syiem, Jansing stated, “I have persolly decided to extend my support to the Executive Committee of the PDF without any condition for the sake of the stability of the Executive Committee in the Council from today till the end of the term.” The Pynursla MDC’s move may have political repercussion in the State Assembly since he is known to be close to Congress legislator and former Cabinet Minister Prestone Tynsong. The move of the Pynursla MDC, who is also the nephew of Prestone, may be a strong indication that the Congress legislator from Pynursla might leave the party ahead of the upcoming 2018 Assembly election. With Jansing pledging his support to in the House of 29, the Congress’ strength has reduced to five MDCs.
