Shillong: Three UDP MLAs will try their luck for a ministerial berth left vacant by the resignation of Bah Metbah Lyngdoh while running for the speaker post.
According to reliable sources, bah H Brolding Nongsiej the second term legislator from Mawthadraishan, bah SK Sunn the Mawphlang MLA who just joined UDP and bah Nujorki Sungoh of Mokaiaw Constituency are said to be doing the round to try their luck for this berth.
Surely this will bring headache to the Party. But it is understood that the matter will be first taken up in the Parliamentary Party which will soon meet and if necessary the matter will be taken to the Party itself.
It may be noted that UDP has 8 MLAs which includes the two who recently joined the party. UDP gets a share of 3 ministerial berths and the Speaker post.
