M’laya Assembly Speaker seeks Mukul Sangma’s reply on disqualification plea by Congress

Guwahati: Meghalaya Assembly Speaker, Metbah Lyngdoh has directed MLA and former Chief Minister, Dr. Mukul Sangma, who recently defected to the Trinamool Congress (TMC) to reply to the petition filed by the Congress challenging their merger.

Lyngdoh has directed Dr. Sangma to reply within seven days of receiving the letter, to the Meghalaya Legislative Assembly Secretariat.

“After careful examination of the petition, the Speaker has directed that a copy of the petition may be forwarded to you for obtaining your comments to the charges, as required under Rule 7(3)(b),” Dr. Andrew Simons, Commissioner & Secretary, Meghalaya Legislative Assembly stated.

Lyngdoh on November 29 has filed the petition seeking the disqualification of Sangma and others from the House.

The Meghalaya Assembly Secretariat thereafter sought reply from the legislators who merged with the All India Trinamool Congress.

Twelve Congress MLAs merged with the TMC recently.

Meanwhile, Ampareen Lyngdoh said that the Speaker’s direction to respond in seven days, in other words, is some sort of a show-cause notice.

“I, at this stage, do not want to comment further on the subject matter and we shall open this discussion when the moment is right. This is a significant moment for our party,” she said.

Lyngdoh also said that she has lodged a complaint against all the MLAs barring two, i.e. Charles Pyngrope and Shitlang Pale.

“I will also be submitting a petition of complaint against them as well, in a day or two,” she informed.
