Meghalaya: PDF suspends two MDCs for ‘anti-party activities’


By Our Reporter, TNT News | Shillong, May 10, 2018: 

A sense of disquiet prevails in the Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) with the council leading an unpredictable house resulting out of the differences which emerged between the CEM and few members of his party — People Democratic Front (PDF), which is also leading the EC in the KHADC.

This turmoil within the PDF is set to widen the gap following the suspension of two of its MDCs — James Sylliang and Grace Mary Kharpuri, who, according to sources, are in open rebellion against the party chief and KHADC CEM, PN Syiem.

The PDF on Thursday suspended the two MDCs for indulging in anti-party activities. When contacted, party president Ivanlumlang Marbaniang said that the two MDCs has been suspended for one year.

This decision of the party would mean that the two MDCs would not be able to contest next year's district council elections from the party.

Both Kharpuri and Sylliang have raised question on the style of functioning of the KHADC CEM and Party Chairman, PN Syiem.
