“As a tribute to his contribution to the state and national politics, a statue of PA Sangma will be erected in Tura,” said NPP national president and Meghalaya CM Conrad K Sangma on Monday.
“A biography on his life will be written and a book on his ideology will be published by 2021,” the CM further said.
He also attended a prayer service that was organised to observe the NPP’s foundation day and PA Sangma’s birth anniversary at Dakopgre in Tura.
“We will also build a museum in his honour,” he further said while thanking NPP workers, well-wishers and friends for supporting the family and the party.
PA Sangma was the Lok Sabha MP of Tura for several years and he passed away on March 4, 2016.
He was also the Chief Minister of Meghalaya from 1988 to 1990.
He also served as the Lok Sabha Speaker from 1996 to 1998.
NPP’s journey began from Manipur in 1989 and it was founded by late L Ibomcha who was also the party’s first president.
In 2012, late Purno Agitok Sangma revived the NPP and took over as the President after launching the party in Meghalaya.
He also launched the NPP in New Delhi by shifting its headquarters from Imphal to the national capital as a “tribal-centric” party with a national outlook.
