Ampati bye poll - High stakes battle for Congress and NPP 23.5.2018 Meghalaya Times

Staff Reporter
SHILLONG, May 23: As the battle to the Ampati election heats up and the National People’s Party (NPP) is going all out to wrest the constituency from the Congress party, the Congress meanwhile is fortifying its defenses and is confident that it will be able to emerge victorious and ending up as the single largest party in Meghalaya.
With both parties currently having 20 members each in the house of 60, the Ampati battleground will be a deciding factor as to which party will emerge as the single largest party in the state and win the political war. The Congress in all likelihood will stake claim to form the government if victorious as hinted by many a Congress legislators soon after the high political drama which unfolded recently in Karnataka.
