Danggo joins BJP; jolt to NPP

​In a major jolt to the NPP in Meghalaya, NPP candidate from Ranikor constituency and Former MLA Martin M Danggo joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday.

He was welcomed by BJP leader and cabinet minister Sanbor Shullai and other party leaders at the state office.

Speaking to reporters, Danggo said he was left with no option but to go as per the decision of his leaders to join the BJP.

“On January 30, they had already held a meeting at Shillong Club and decided to resign en masse. So where do I stand when people have already resigned enmass where do I go alone so I have to follow them,” he said.

Danggo refused to comment on the allegations made by the NPP leaders including deputy chief minister Prestone Tynsong.

“Whatever they think, let them think but I am going by the decision of my leaders and supporters. That’s all I have nothing to clarify on that,” he said.

Allegedly, Danggo Assam CM Himanta Bishwasharma in Guwahati prior to this joining. Infact his supporters too joined the saffron party two days back.

Meanwhile, the NPP will take a call on the new candidate for Ranikor constituency at a meeting to be held at Rangthong tomorrow.
