‘Cong lawyer examining Speaker’s merger order’

Shillong, Dec 28: The lawyer of the Congress is examining the order of Assembly Speaker Metbah Lyngdoh who recognised the merger  of 12 Congress legislators with AITC.

Speaking to reporters, Pala said on Tuesday that there will be a meeting with the party high command, CLP leader and other leaders after the new year celebrations.

“After a proper deliberation we will take a collective decision on the matter”, he said.

Pala said the order was given to one of the lawyers and he is studying the matter but no decison was taken.

The MPCC president added that he will meet senior lawyers and discuss on appealing it in the higher courts.

“As of now, no decision has been taken  whether the party should stop pursuing the matter or go forward”, he said

Soon after the merger verdict of the Speaker, the CLP leader  Ampareen Lyngdoh had said she would not pursue the matter as her focus will be on the Congress party’s campaign in 2022. “The party however may have a different view on the matter. On this our president will decide and we await his decision on the matter”, Ampareen had said.
