The Congress has decided to move a no confidence motion against the NPP-led Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government alleging its failure in all fronts.
Leader of Opposition Mukul Sangma told reporters the no confidence motion would be moved on Tuesday, and the Opposition left it to the wisdom of the Speaker, Metbah Lyngdoh, whether he would allow or not to take up the motion..
The former Chief Minister alleged that the Conrad K Sangma-led government has failed to protect the interest of the state while alleging scams and illegalities in the state and deteriorating law and order.
The no confidence motion is also seen as a move to topple the MDA government which has too many coalition partners.
“It depends on the conscience and realization of the members of the House,” Mukul said when asked whether the opposition hopes it can topple the government.
The Congress has 19 MLAs in the 60-member House, while the MDA has 41 MLAs including three Independents.
