He said that the decision of the party to suspend him was uncalled for as only one year is left for the elections to the three Autonomous District Councils in the State.

Sylliang said that the party president, Ivanlumlang Marbaniang was only a ‘puppet’ adding that he suspended him from the party as per the directive of Syiem, who is also the chairman of the party.

While lambasting the KHADC CEM for his ‘dictatorial style’ of functioning, he said that the MDCs are just waiting for the special session of the KHADC to deliberate on the Rs 28 crore which was forcefully diverted by the CEM.

He said that he is trying to get the support of the 20 MDCs for convening of the special session.
