Shillong, Nov 25:
KHADC chairman, Pynshngain N Syiem has justified that his decision to vote in favour of the no-confidence motion moved by opposition to topple the UDP led Executive Committee (EC) in the Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) cannot be termed as 'anti-party activities'.
"I had voted in favour of the no-confidence motion since I had listened to my conscience and the sentiments of the public as the then Executive Committee was not carrying their responsibility collectively," Syiem, who was expelled from the NPP for 'anti-party activities' said while speaking to reporters here today.
The new coalition under the umbrella of United Democratic Forum (UDF) has also managed to appoint independent MDC from Nongthymmai, Latiplang Kharkongor to post of the Chief Executive Member of the Council.
