Shillong: NPP which led the MDA government of which UDP is a partner in a press release today has decided not to contest in the Shella Bye Election scheduled next month but will give full support to the UDP candidate bah Balajiedkupar Synrem.
It may be recalled that the Shella Assembly seat was left vacant by the untimely demise of Dr. Donkupar Roy president of the UDP. The Election Commission Meghalaya has announced the 21st October 2019 as the date for the election of a new MLA. Meanwhile, UDP too has decided to field Balajiedkupar Synrem the son of its late leader. Therefore, it will be a fitting homage on the part of the NPP to honour him with this noble decision.
