Political parties in poll-bound Meghalaya are roping in Christian leaders from Kerala to campaign for their party candidates in the run-up to the February 27 elections in the State.
Some of the prominent leaders from the southern state expected to take part in the poll campaigns of the hill state, which is pre-dominantly a Christian state, include former two-time Congress Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, senior legislator K C Joseph, Lok Sabha member Anto Antony and MLA Dominic Presentation.
Chandy will begin his campaign from Monday next after he was directed by the Congress High Command to travel to Meghalaya.
The Meghalaya Assembly has 29 Congress legislators at present.
On the other hand, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) has asked its Kerala unit to send former state minister Thomas Chandy and party leader Mani C Kappen for campaigning for the party candidates in the hill state.
Notably the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) campaign crusade in the poll-bound state is already been spearheaded by Union Minister of State for Tourism, K J Alphons.
