Will fight for the people of NE: Sangma

LAMKA, Mar 29: Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma on Friday said the National People’s Party (NPP) would fight for the people of the Northeast to give them an effective voice.
Addressing a public meeting here in Manipur, Sangma said since the states of the region have fewer parliamentary seats as compared to bigger states like Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, “sometimes Delhi does not take us seriously.”
Sangma kickstarted the campaign on behalf of Thangmimlen Kipgen, who is contesting for the outer Manipur constituency.
The Meghalaya CM had recently drawn praise for taking a strong stand against the citizenship amendment bill, which could not be tabled in the Rajya Sabha and is destined to collapse with the end of the present term of the Lok Sabha on 3 June.
In addition to Meghalaya, the NPP is contesting the general election in other northeastern states. (PTI)
