Earlier, Conrad K Sangma maintained that the NPP will win the Tura Parliamentary seat despite the Congress decision to field former Chief Minister, Dr Mukul Sangma.

“We know that the party is getting a good response at the grass root level. The party organisation is very upbeat and therefore I am sure that the NPP would win the Tura seat by a very big margin,” Chief Minister  said while talking to reporters

Sangma said that the Government and the party had been working very hard in the past one year  and he is sure that  the people of the State would like to see the good work of the present government continues in the days to come

It may be mentioned that the Congress had decided to field former Chief Minister from Tura Parliamentary seat and sitting MP, Vincent H Pala from the Shillong Parliamentary seat.

When asked if the controversy of Citizenship Amendment Bill  has led to rift between NPP and its ally, BJP, he said that the NPP was very clear that   there is no ambiguity in the stand of the NPP over the issue of CAB

“In coalition, there will be differences and areas of disagreement and CAB was an issue of disagreement and we were very clear   that if certain line is crossed, it would lead us to break our ties with them,” the Chief Minister said.
