SHILLONG, Dec 23: The Khun Hynniewtrep tiol Awakening Movement (KHM) Working president Adelbert Nongrum today claimed that the reason they have joined the ruling PDF in the District Council is to stall the attempts of Mawlai MDC P.T Sawkmie to dethrone PN Syiem as the CEM KHADC.

Sawkmie is an MDC who defected from KHM and accommodated as Deputy CEM KHADC in the Congress led PDF Executive Committee (EC). Taking cudgels against Sawkmie and subsequent decision of the party to support the PDF, KHM working president made it clear that the party is up to take on the nefarious designs of the old comrade in arms.

“Two months ago we support the ruling PDF in the District Council when we are in the opposition because P.T Sawkmei was trying to dethrone P.N Syiem as the CEM KHADC and now he is trying to do it again that is why we have decided to join the PDF in order to give our full support to the CEM,” Adelbert Nongrum said while speaking with newsmen here.

He said that there is a strong motion to replace the current CEM and if the P. N Syiem gets overthrow then many issues which the KHADC is fight will ultimately go to the state government and the existences of the District Council will be in jeopardy since all its powers are going to stched away by the state government.

“We did not join and support the PDF because of P.T Sawkmei or Latiplang Kharkongor but we gave our support specifically to CEM P.N Syiem because as we have observed he is the only one who can go head to head with the Chief Minister Mukul Sangma who has been going against the traditiol customs and beliefs of our people,” he said.
