Midnight Meeting of Meghalaya CM with Assam CM Ahead of Counting of Votes

New Delhi: A day before vote counting in Meghalaya, its Chief Minister met the Assam CM in a midnight meeting.

Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad Sangma, who heads the National People’s Party (NPP) had preferred his party to fight the assembly polls all alone. NPP and BJP were having a coalition government in Meghalaya, but they preferred to fight the elections separately.

According to sources, Meghalaya CM Sangma and BJP’s Assam CM Himant Biswa Sarma discussed the possibility of a post-election alliance. Their so-called hasty secret meeting took place in a hotel in Assam’s Guwahati.

After this midnight, Sangma returned to Tura, his hometown in Meghalaya, on Thursday morning.

Sarma is said to be the BJP’s northeast strategist. His meeting with the Meghalaya CM has led to political speculations that a post-election alliance may come up in Meghalaya between NPP and BJP.

But both leaders downplayed this midnight meeting as “two friends catching up”.
