Shillong, Mar 19 (ANI): The head of the Congress-led Meghalaya United Alliance (MUA), D.D. Lapang will prove its strength on the floor of the assembly today.
Congress with 28 legislators, including three Independents, in the 60-member house, expects wining over rival Meghalaya Progressive Alliance (MPA).
Lapang is likely to resign today asked by National Congress Party (NCP) leader P A Sangma.
Meghalaya Governor S. S. Sidhus decision to invite Lapang was challenged in the Supreme Court by former Lok Sabha Speaker Sangma.
Sangma had claimed that the NCP-led MPA had the support of 31 of the 60 elected members, whereas the Congress had not been able to cobble up a majority. (ANI)
