Shillong (Meghalaya) [India], Mar. 05 (ANI): Designated Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad Sangma on Monday said his alliance have a clear majority to form a government in the state and "it was nothing to be surprised about".
"Congress had 21 seats, we went with 34 to the governor. It's a democracy. Aap hi bataiye, Governor 21 waale ko bulaenge ya 34 waale ko? We clearly have the majority. There's nothing to be surprised about," Sangma told ANI.
"Our leaders (Congress) had worked hard in Meghalaya and secured more seats than them. BJP had won only two seats. They converted that two to 30. They broke off our party supporters and took them with them. Governor shouldn't agree to this, they can't be the single largest party," Kharge told ANI.
"Opportunity must be given to single largest party. If it can't prove majority then party at 2nd position could be invited. They don't want democracy and want to create environment of fear. It won't go on for long, people will understand this gradually," Kharge added.
