G-8 awaits Lapang response
SHILLONG: The seven out of eight legislators, who protested against the style and functioning of the Chief Minister and his Cabinet colleagues by shooting off a letter, held an informal meeting on Monday even as the MPCC president DD Lapang had conveyed the concerns of the legislators to the ministers in a separate meeting recently.
A legislator, who is part of the group of aggrieved legislators including Celestine Lyngdoh who could not attend Monday’s meeting as he was out of station, said on Monday that though there was no official meeting among themselves, there was an informal exchange of ideas as there was no feedback from MPCC president to their letter of protest.
“We will have a meeting of the group of eight (G-8) legislators soon to discuss our grievances and how to address them,” the dissident legislator said.
Last week, Congress legislators Ronnie Lyngdoh, Coming One Ymbon, Kennedy Khyriem, Pynshgainlang Syiem, Celestine Lyngdoh and associated members of the Congress Justine Dkhar, Robinus Syngkon and Stephanson Mukhim wrote to the MPCC president expressing concern over the whole cabinet keeping aloof and not bothered to listen to the various grievances of the legislators.
