Meghalaya assembly speaker Metbah Lyngdoh on Tuesday admitted a ‘no-confidence motion’ moved against the NPP-led Meghalaya Democratic Alliance government by the Opposition Congress.
The motion, accusing the government of having failed on all fronts was submitted through the commissioner and secretary of the Assembly by the leader of the opposition, Mukul Sangma along with 10 other Congress MLAs.
The Speaker, before admitting the motion, asked the opposition to raise at least 10 members in support of the motion expressing want of confidence in the council of ministers led by chief minister Conrad K Sangma.
After more than 10 members rose in support of the motion, the Speaker announced that the no-confidence motion would be taken up on Wednesday at 11 am after the question hour.
The Opposition moved the no-confidence motion alleging that the MDA government has failed on all fronts, particularly the failure to protect the interest of the state.
