UDP banks on dark horses to emerge single largest after polls

SHILLONG: While the other political parties in the state are counting on their popular faces to win the upcoming Assembly elections, the United Democratic Party (UDP) feels that its potential dark horses will be the trump card for the party in the next State Assembly polls.

Speaking to media persons here on Tuesday, UDP Working president, Paul Lyngdoh while expressing confidence about UDP emerging as the single largest party, pointed out that party’s dark horses with huge winning potential were working silently in the field since last three to four years.

Slamming the Congress, Lyngdoh said that the State had to get rid of Congress   because of its decades of misrule, corruption and anti-people policy even as he added that the UDP did not see any threat from any other political party as the role of other parties was bound to diminish after UDP emerged the single largest party post Assembly elections.

About the UDP-HSPDP alliance, he said that this was for the first time after 1980s when UDP and HSPDP have come together on a single platform adding that regional parties are not divided but it is the Congress party   which stands divided at the moment.

“There are at least four splinter groups which emerged from Congress fold be it NCP, NPP, PDF and breakaway faction from Mukul Sangma group,” he said.

The UDP leader also said that in the year 2015, UDP had made a simple offer to the leader of KHNAM to work together and prepare together for the Assembly but their response was, “Let us wait”, Let Us See”, “Let Us Discuss”.
