HSPDP MLAs downplay ‘misunderstanding’

SHILLONG: The two newly-elected MLAs of HSPDP- Samlin Malngiang and Renikton Lyngdoh Tongkhar on Tuesday played safe on the issue of HSPDP’s boss threat to withdraw the support to the new coalition Government.

Earlier, Basaiawmoit had expressed his unhappiness with the UDP for pitching for Conrad Sangma as the next chief minister sans the due process of consultation between the two pre-poll allies.

Speaking to media persons here on Tuesday, both the MLAs said that they had not decided to leave the party and they were intact and such misunderstandings were natural.

“We are two in the parliamentary party of the HSPDP and we are united and together and we want to see the interest of the party and the people of the State and so we want to be in the Government to serve the people of the state as a party,” the two leaders said.

Stating that such issues always occurs in a family, the duo said that they did not had sufficient time to think about the whole issue.

“Now we are sitting inside the bus and we will decide whether we need to get down of the bus or we have to continue with the journey,” the leader said.

While expressing confidence that the HSPDP will not split, he expressed confidence that they would be able to resolve the misunderstanding.

He also said that it was the party president, Ardent Basaiawmoit who directed them to work with the regional democratic alliance and UDP

“The direction was that since we fought the election with UDP, we have to be with UDP and we did exactly the same,” they said.

The HSPDP president, Ardent Basaiamoit earlier had made it clear that they would not be part of the swearing-in  ceremony and had even asked its two MLA to desist from taking part in the swearing-in ceremony.
