Congress to support PDF for Ranikor by-poll
The Congress in Meghalaya has decided to lend support to People’s Democratic Front (PDF) for the Ranikor by-poll. This came after 16 MDC of the Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) decided to oust CEM Pynsgngain N. Syiem. This came after UDP did not agree to go hand in hand with Congress.
