Assam Chief Minister Himanta Sarma said that his Meghalaya counterpart Conrad Sangma called Union Home Minister Amit Shah seeking support to form a government in the state.
“Chief Minister of Meghalaya Conrad Sangma called Amit Shah ji, Hon’ble Home Minister and sought his support and blessings in forming the new Government,” tweeted CM Sarma. Sarma further said that BJP national president JP Nadda has advised the state unit of the party to support the National People’s Party in forming the next government in Meghalaya.
“Adaraniya Sri JP Nadda ji, the national president of the BJP has advised the state unit of BJP, Meghalaya to support the National People’s Party in forming the next government in Meghalaya,” Assam CM added. Earlier, Sangma dropped a subtle hint of a possible post-poll alliance, as the latest counting trends pointed to the likelihood of a hung Assembly.
“We’d like to thank the people of the state for having voted for us. We are a few numbers short, so we’ll wait for the final results to come out. We will decided our future course of action on the basis of the final results,” said CM Sangma.
