No-Confidence Motion moved by Opposition; CM confident of winning motion
Meghalaya Assembly Speaker Metbah Lyngdoh has fixed November 11, 11:00 am for discussion of motion.
Chief Minister Conrad K. Sangma, on Tuesday, said that he was confident of winning the No-Confidence Motion moved against his government by the Mukul Sangma-led Opposition.
Meghalaya Speaker Metbah Lyngdoh had admitted the motion moved by the Opposition Congress for "failure to protect the interest of the state".
"There were many other forms through which the Opposition could have mentioned the issues concerning them. But the Opposition has chosen this particular route, so we are ready," said the CM, adding that he has asked all his ministers to be present for the motion.
The No-Confidence Motion was submitted by the Opposition led by Mukul Sangma, Zenith Sangma, Winnerson D Sangma, P.T Sawkmie, H.M Shangpliang, Dikanchi Shira, Miani Shira, Kimfa Marbaniang, George Lyngdoh, Mohendro Rapsang, and Lazarus Sangma.
Admitting the motion, Meghalaya Legislative Assembly, Speaker Metbah Lyngdoh has fixed November 11 for discussion at 11 am.
The Opposition has been consistently attacking the ruling government over issues of illegal coal mining and transportation, uranium mining, the situation in Ichamati, the current financial situation in the state, and the alleged corruption in the Garo Hills Autonomous District Council (GHADC).
The Opposition also made a stand on the issue of illegal coal mining and transportation in the state, with the Opposition leader earlier stating that he would "quit politics if anyone can prove that the 32 lakh metric tonnes of extracted coal has not been lifted, as claimed by the state government."
