Meghalaya: East Shillong MLA Ampareen Lyngdoh resigns

Meghalaya’s East Shillong MLA Ampareen Lyngdoh has resigned from the Congress party. She has announced her formal resignation from Congress by tweeting from her official handle.

On Monday, she tweeted the letter of resignation and tagged Congress National President Mallikarjun Kharge, former party president Rahul Gandhi and Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

In her resignation, Lyngdoh wrote that she has spent most of her life as a staunch supporter and foot soldier of the Indian National Congress. The party has given her the opportunity to serve the people of Meghalaya as a Minister and as a representative of my East Shillong constituency. She also wrote that the party had appointed her as a Secretary of the All India Congress Committee, and that she was greatful for the party’s support this far.

Congress has lost its direction

Lyngdoh further wrote in the letter that however, recent developments withing the party have led her to belive that the Congress has lost its sense of direction. She added that there was a dire need for the party and the leadership to consider this. She also thinks true and honest attempts at introspection have failed.

Congress lost touch with the people of Meghalaya

She furthers her letter, saying that the party has lost touch with the people of Meghalaya and that she no longer believes this was the best platform for her to serve. Therefore, with deep regret, I am writing for my formal resignation from the primary membership of the Congress with immediate effect, she added.

Ampareen Lyngdoh likely to join NPP

Notably, the resignation of Ampareen Lyngdoh from the Congress came at a time when assembly elections are to be held in Meghalaya only next year. People familiar with the matter are speculating that Lyngdoh along with another MLA was ready to join the ruling National People’s Party (NPP). NPP is an ally of BJP in Meghalaya.

Last month, two MLAs from the NPP and one from the opposition All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) in Meghalaya resigned to join the BJP.

Elections in these northeastern states next year

Apart from Meghalaya, assembly elections are also due in 2023 in the northeastern states of Tripura, Nagaland and Mizoram. BJP has already assured its victory in these states. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the two northeastern states of Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh on Sunday has also been seen in connection with the same. Reactions on the resignation of Ampareen Lyngdoh are yet to come from the top Congress leaders.
