Opposition political parties’ lack of alliance wards off unity in Assembly: Ronnie Lyngdoh

The opposition bench consists of 14 MLAs, five from the Congress, five from the AITCC, and four from the Voice of the People Party (VPP).

SHILLONG:

Ronnie V. Lyngdoh, the leader of opposition, stated that the opposition political parties’ lack of an alliance prevents them from being united in the Assembly.

The opposition bench consists of 14 MLAs, five from the Congress, five from the AITCC, and four from the Voice of the People Party (VPP).

As indicated by Lyngdoh, who is likewise 3-time Mylliem legislator, the Congress will uphold relevant issues raised by the other two opposition political groups – AITC and VPP.

“There is no concern about unity. We will take up specific issues as and when it is expected in the House. We will discuss with other parties if there are pertinent issues that need to be addressed because as such, we do not have an alliance, so as and when required, we will take it up with other parties,” the opposition leader stated.

Lyngdoh responded, “The VPP has already made it clear that they are not interested in having an alliance with anyone and will go alone,” when asked if there will be any effort to form an alliance among the opposition political parties.

The AITC has not yet made the Congress any proposal for forming an alliance.

“We being a national party as and when we received such offer then we will take up with the party,” he added, “it was very clear that there was no move from any party to form an alliance.”

Whether it’s healthy to have a disunited opposition, the leader of opposition said indeed the ruling parties are having an alliance but you can still see on certain issues, one or two of the alliance partners don’t simple agree with the major parties.

However, based on issues, he stated that the Congress will support the other two opposition political parties.

“We will support them if one of the opposition parties raises issues that are pertinent and require our support,” Lyngdoh said, adding that he doubted the opposition parties would oppose congressional issues in the House.
