The United Democratic Party (UDP) on Monday decided to serve showcause notices to the party MDCs in the Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC)- Paul Lyngdoh and Teibor Pathaw- for extending support to the Chief Executive Member (CEM), Latiplang Kharkongor.
Lyngdoh and Pathaw were part of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) and on Sunday, both had submitted a letter in support of Kharkongor. In the joint letter addressed to the CEM, the two MDCs stated that they are extending support due to the prevailing crisis and impasse in the Council and the need to bring back the administration on track for the larger interests of the council.
It may mentioned that with the joining of the two MDCs, the strength of the United Democratic Forum (UDF) has gone up to 15 minus the chairman of the Council, PN Syiem while the strength of the UDA has been reduce to 13.
