NPP inaugurates new office in New Delhi; becomes the first party from NE to do so
National President of the National People's Party (NPP) and Meghalaya Chief Minister, Conrad K Sangma inaugurated the party’s new office in New Delhi on Thursday. Being the eighth national party in the country, NPP was allotted an office by the Indian government at 75 North Avenue, Raisian Hills, New Delhi.
Dedicating the office to his late father and former Lok Sabha Speaker, PA Sangma, the Chief Minister said that the Government of India has allotted the office to NPP for fulfilling the criteria of a National Party. “No political party from Northeast has ever achieved this feat,” he said, terming the inauguration as a "great moment for the people of Northeast".
Speaking about how the party is expanding its reach to different parts of the country, he said that NPP began its journey with the Northeast as its prime focus, but today, it is expanding its reach for the cause of the minorities and marginalised sections of the society.
“In the coming days, NPP will further strengthen itself and will emerge as a major political force in the nation. We will also ensure victory in the Manipur Assembly election in 2022,” he said, adding that the next Chief Minister of Manipur will be from NPP.
Sangma was accompanied by his mother and wife of Late PA Sangma, Soradini K Sangma, National Vice President of NPP, Dr. DD Lapang, Deputy Chief Minister of Meghalaya, Prestone Tynsong, Deputy CM of Manipur, Joykumar Singh, Rajya Sabha MP, Dr. W R Kharlukhi, and Member of Lok Sabha, Agatha K Sangma, along with other political leaders from different parts of the country.
During the day-long programme in Delhi, CM Sangma also held several review meetings with different states to further strengthen the party.
