Shillong, May 22: State Revenue Minister and United Democratic Party (UDP) legislator from Khliehriat in East Jaintia Hills district, Kyrmen Shylla on Tuesday, sent a loud and clear message to the people of Ampati constituency that the UDP’s coalition with the NPP and other partners will last the full term.

“Don’t dare to even think of breaking our relationship with NPP and others. We will stand together and ensure progress and prosperity of Meghalaya”, Shylla said while addressing election rallies at Murchapani and Garabokmangre under Ampati constituency.
Shylla said that under the leadership of Chief Minister, Conrad Kongkal Sangma, the people of Meghalaya have renewed their hope and aspirations and are looking forward to him to bring about positive change and development in the State.
“Meghalaya Democratic Alliance will stand united and together. All the regional parties have full support and faith in the leadership of Conrad Sangma. I assure that this relationship of the coalition will not just last five years but beyond,” Shylla asserted.

He stated at the rallies that the people of Ampati were lucky to have a candidate like Clement G Momin, who will be part of the new Government. “The agenda of our Government is to create a new Meghalaya and the people of Ampati should not be left behind,” Shylla added.

Today’s high voltage rallies of NPP saw presence of the Chief Minister, C&RD Minister Sniawbhalang Dhar, Government Chief Whip Agatha K Sangma and a host of other party functionaries from Khasi and Jaintia Hills, who are all out to drum up support for NPP candidate Clement G Momin.

For the past one week, NPP and its partners are camping in Ampati constituency to woo the voters to unite with NPP and break the Congress in Ampati, a stronghold of Mukul Sangma.

“The by-election is very important for NPP as this will demonstrate that Ampati is ready to embrace change and are willing to be on the ruling side, a Government that promises to ensure overall growth and development,” Conrad said.
