Respect people's mandate: Mukul Sangma to BJP”

Conrad Sangma would also take Swear on March 6 though Sangma remain tightlipped on the date of the oath-taking ceremony.

Following his meeting with Prasad, the NPP leader said that his party MLAs are committed to the development of the state and its people.

# Next 2-3 days are very crucial because Assembly term gets over.

He said the saffron party would not like to take the lead in government formation even though it is ready to talk to everyone "unofficially" to form a government. "I don't see maturity in him", said Sarma.

Following the verdict, party leaders met Meghalaya governor Ganga Prasad late last night and demanded that it should be invited to form the next government. Mukul Sangma, who led the Congress government in the State for the past five years, also reached out to UDP party president Donkupar Roy.

The Indian National Congress which on Sunday emerged as the single largest party in Meghalaya Assembly Elections 2018 staked claimed to form the government.

Sarma who was camping in Shillong since Saturday and was instrumental in foiling the Congress bid to woo the regional political parties including the Peoples Democratic Front (PDF), said that BJP would also be the part of the government.

"How can we have upper hand?"

The BJP is leading in six seats as per the early trends. "But there are circumstances and so we will have to be here", he said. "Conrad Sangma has agreed to the condition and we will form a stable government".

So far, no party in Meghalaya has managed to get a clear mandate of 31 seats and the smaller regional parties always play kingmakers. Bhartiya Janata Party won two seats and the NCP and KHNAM one seats each, besides three independents.

Talking to reporters right after her win from Laitumukhurh constituency, in Shillong, Ampareen said, "BJP has done nothing but spread hatred in my constituency".

"The Congress Legislature Party (CLP) consisting of the newly elected MLAs of the party will first elect on the new CLP leader".

NPP is part of a coalition comprising parties like Regional Democratic Alliance (RDA), the United Democratic Party (UDP), Hill State People's Democratic Party (HSPDP) and the BJP.
