Shillong, June 20 (IANS) The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) Wednesday said that the resignation of P.A. Sangma won’t have any impact on the party in Meghalaya.

“Sangma has resigned from the primary membership of the NCP and as a legislator in his personal capacity and personal reasons and it does not have anything to do with the NCP Meghalaya unit,” Leader of Opposition and NCP legislator Conrad K. Sangma told IANS.

“One of our legislators resigned at his personal level, for his own reasons and we as a unit cannot stop anyone if they want to resign,” said Conrad Sangma, who is P.A. Sangma’s son.

Conrad Sangma, however, said that the NCP legislators would be meeting to discuss the elder Sangma’s resignation.

Meghalaya assembly Speaker Charles Pyngrope said he was yet to receive the resignation letter of P.A. Sangma, who is a legislator in the 60-member house.

“I have not received any official communication from the NCP or Sangma,” Pyngrope told reporters.

In the 60-member assembly, the opposition NCP has 15 members while the ruling Congress, with 28 legislators, is supported by other parties and independents.
