Former Congress legislator HDR Lyngdoh resigns from Congress, likely to join UDP

Shillong, Jun 8: Ex-Congress legislator from Sohiong constituency HDR Lyngdoh has resigned from the primary membership of the party and is likely to join the United Democratic Party (UDP).

Lyngdoh in his resignation letter to Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) president, Vincent H Pala said that he resigned from the party due to “unprecedented circumstances” and “inevitable reasons”.

In his resignation letter the former Home Minister acknowledged that the Congress had provided him with opportunities and blessings in his political career and to the development of the people of the Sohiong constituency where he served.

“The Congress party elevated me in many higher positions to serve the people of the state of Meghalaya,” even as he said that he was indebted to the party and its leaders.

Lyngdoh also said that at the end of the day while serving his people in Sohiong he has to pay heed to the majority voices for the inevitable fact that they are the ones who are going to make his win or lose in the election.

“Therefore I am forced to tender this resignation only for the single fact and reason that all my supporters 99.9 percent want me to contest this coming Assembly election in 2023 not anymore from the Congress party but from the party of their collective choices,” he said.
