Another sitting NPP MLA resigns

Another sitting NPP legislator resigned on Wednesday. Legislator from Phulbari constituency SG Esmatur Mominin has become the third sitting legislator from the ruling NPP who resigned as member of the 11th Meghalaya Legislative Assembly.


Mominin handed over his resignation letter to the Speaker Metbah Lyngdoh at the Assembly Secretariat in Kyndai Lad here. He is likely to soon join the opposition All India Trinamool Congress (AITC).


This also came after the NPP denied ticket to the sitting MLA and announced the name of former Assembly Speaker AT Mondal as its official candidate from Phulbari constituency.


Earlier, two NPP legislators – Ferlin CA Sangma (Selsella) and Benedic Marak (Raksamgre) – had resigned and joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).


While continuing the resignation spree, altogether, seven legislators have so far resigned ahead of the elections reducing the strength of the House of 60 to 54.


The others include – Ampareen Lyngdoh (East Shillong), Mohendro Rapsang (West Shillong), Kimfa S Marbaniang (Rambrai-Jyrngam) and Himalaya Shangpliang (Mawsynram).
