PDF all set to officially merge with NPP in Shillong tomorrow

SHILLONG, MAY 5: The People’s Democratic Front (PDF) on Friday officially announced its decision to merge with the ruling party.

The decision was unanimously taken at the general council meeting of PDF held here.

Speaking to reporters, PDF chief Gavin M Mylliem said, “We have unanimously decided to merge with the NPP after the meeting gave the signal for us to move ahead with the proposal.”

“As a party we have been working together with the NPP for the last five years under the MDA government and under the able leadership of the chief minister Conrad K Sangma, who is also at the same time the NPP national president. Through a series of discussions, most of the members are politically inclined to the NPP considering the ideologies and also what has been said in the manifesto of the NPP,” he said.

Mylliem informed that merger will take place tomorrow. There will be a grand welcome by the NPP to all leaders of the PDF.

“We also be signing a merging document tomorrow,” he added.

Asked if a cabinet berth has been promise to the PDF, Mylliem however said, “On the cabinet post, it totally depends on the wisdom of the chief minister.”

He however made it clear that the two PDF legislators have already been assigned as advisers of different departments – Lyngdoh as the adviser of the agriculture and farmers’ welfare department and Mylliem as adviser of the health and family welfare department.
