SUB DIVISION   DEMANDS   MULTIPLY

The demands for more civil sub divisions in the state multiply. Whether government would    concede to these  demands  after  Martin  M. Danggo  had  resigned  from  the  Congress  and  on  his   way  to  join  the  National People’s  Party (NPP)  on the  inauguration  of  the  new  Ranikor  civil  sub- division.  The Mawlai constituency Legislator, Process T.  Sawkmie  had  made  it  a  point  in   meeting   the  Chief  Minister  Conrad  K.  Sangma   staking  claim  to  upgrade  Mawlai  a  suburb  of  Shillong   into  a  civil  sub  division  having  a  population  of 80,000. In Mawsynram, a committee has been constituted headed by Congress Legislator  Hima  Shangpliang for  making  Mawsynram  civil  sub- division, a demand  which  has  been hanging  fire  for  the  last  20  years. Umroi Legislator  George Lyngdoh,  has  also put  forward  his  claim  that  Umroi  in  Ri  Bhoi,  deserve  to get  the  status  of  a civil  sub-division, which  cover  mostly  the  eastern  Ri  Bhoi  sector.

POLITICAL MELTING POT  

Ranikor has become the political melting pot, ever  since  the Legislative Assembly   representative, Martin  Danggo  has  resigned  in  a  mysterious  manner,  as  his  resignation  letter  has  travelled  all  the  way  to  Kolkata  to  get  the  approval  of  the  Speaker  Don  Kupar  Roy.   The  fact  however,  remain  that  Danggo   has  also  parted  ways  with  the  Congress  and  is  all  set  to  join  hands  with  the  National  People’s  Party  (NPP).   Therefore,  there  has  been  a  lot  of  fuss  over  the  matter.  The  fact  remain  that  Ranikor  would  have  to  elect  a  representative,  which  Danggo  would  himself  has  to  be  re-elected.  Besides,  the Congress the  ruling  regional  party  alliance, the  United  Democratic  Party  (UDP) has  decided  to  contest  and  also  the  People’s  Democratic  Front  (PDF) supremo  Pynshngain N. Syiem ,  who  lost  his  Mawsynram  seat  to  Hima  Shangpliang  of  the  Congress.  The  confidence  of  Danggo,  a  veteran  all  time  winner  in  Ranikor,  would  face  a  severe  test  of  strength. Ranikor  therefore  is  all  set  to  become  a  political  melting  pot.
