Shillong Nov 30: NPP candidate for Shillong parliamentary seat and cabinet minister Ampareen Lyngdoh on Thursday said the National People’s Party has its own identity and is not synonymous with the Bharatiya Janata Party.
Addressing media persons after a consultation meeting with leaders from Jaintia Hills region, Lyngdoh said, “I am here with the agenda of the party and we stick by that and we dispel the myth that we are synonymous with BJP. NPP has its own identity. We are not going to be submerged by any ideas or ideologies which are averse to the people of the State. We are NPP, we are members of the NDA and there is absolutely no harm to be coalition partners with the NDA.”
