For CM, winning two seats is a sweet victory

Shillong, Nov 5: The win in bypolls is a ‘sweet victory’ for the ruling party.

Chief Minister Conrad Sangma said this on Friday while addressing the felicitation programme of the newly elected party MLAs from Mawryngkneng and Rajabala – Pyniaid Sing Syiem and Abdus Saleh – and Mawphlang candidate Lamphrang Blah at the NPP office.

Sangma said, “It was a very sweet victory for us because both these constituencies were not the NPP’s constituencies, they were from the opposition and it is not easy for any party to be able to capture constituencies which are not yours. Not only Rajabala even Mawryngkneng has never been a constituency where the NPP has won. In fact in both the constituencies NPP has been in third or fourth position everytime.”
