Shillong: The Senior Working President of the UDP Bindo M Lanong has said that the UDP never demand a new post, but only a replacement for late Dr. Donkupar Roy a UDP man.
It may be recalled here that the Speaker post in the MDA ruled government goes to the UDP, the MDA partner. For the UDP that has not changed but it is left vacant only by natural circumstances, i.e. the sudden demise of the person occupying that chair. Therefore, it is the duty of the UDP to inform that the party will give a replacement. This has been the argument of the UDP.
This argument is also at the back of Lanong’s statement when he says, “We never ask anything new, but only that we will retain the post with a new replacement”.
