Shillong: Certain UDP leaders feel that someone with potential to command respect is what the party needed. And that someone they could see in Bah Paul Lyngdoh.
This saying comes at a time when UDP is facing tough time since the death of its president, Dr. Donkupar Roy recently. On condition of anonymity one leader said that a leader of great caliber like bah Paul Lyngdoh is the need of the hour for the party.
Saying this he also clarifies that he has no intention whatsoever to create any rift within the party because it is true that other leaders are also invested with much potentials but it is up to the party to select the best among all to lead the party.
The leader also said, “in my observation even Dr Mukul Sangma and Conrad K Sangma will not deny that he is one who will not be easily challenged”
UDP will select its president on the 11th of September 2019 and there are some who already express their willingness in case the party wants them for the task and amongst whom are veteran leader Bindo Lanong, also Dr Jemino Mawthoh, and bah Metbah Lyngdoh apart from bah Paul Lyngdoh.
