GHADC trust vote tomorrow; Will KHADC dramatic episode recur in Garo Hills?
TURA | Nov 26:
The Garo Hills Autonomous District Council (GHADC) is set to witness a similar political drama as in the Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) with all eyes fixed on the crucial trust vote to be held on Wednesday.
The No-Confidence motion was moved by the Opposition Congress on November 25, the vote of which will be held tomorrow as the order of business.
Interestingly prior to the trust vote, an election to the post of Deputy Chairman of the GHADC will be held after the current deputy chairman, Mettrinson Momin, resigned following an attempt by the National Peoples' Party (NPP) to "impeach" him.
Mettirnson had continued as deputy chairman despite joining the opposition Congress when the 1st NPP EC in the GHADC for this term was voted out by a coalition led by the Congress party. Mettrinson had joined the Congress then and he stepped down when the NPP moved to impeach him for siding with the Congress on Monday.
The election will now be held tomorrow between the NPP representative, Augustine Marak and the Congress candidate, Mettrinson.
