Churachandpur, February 16 2017:
The National Peoples' Party leader and Meghalaya's Opposition chief whip James Sangma has stated that his party is hopeful of an emphatic win in the coming polls.
He said that the party whose roots can be traced to Meghalaya and which was nurtured by his late father PA Sangma, seemed to be coming back in full force in the State.
With the party's candidates clearing today's scrutiny, he told a joint press conference held at the residence of veteran politician Phungzathang Tonsing that he hopes to witness vigorous campaigning and a subsequent emphatic win for the party.
He further stated that NPP has fielded candidates in 21 seats across the State, and is hoping to win in all of them.
He along with Tonsing also denied that the party's manifesto contain anything that is detrimental for the State's tribal community. NPP has in fact not yet officially released its manifesto, he added.
