SHILLONG, DEC 6: National Peopleâ€™s Party (NPP) national vice president and deputy chief minister Prestone Tynsong on Tuesday expressed confidence that his party will form the government on its own in 2023.
â€œWe are prepared and we are ready to fight. Post 2023 election, we are going to form the government on our own,â€ Tynsong told reporters.
When asked, the NPP leader said that he doesnâ€™t see other political parties as a threat nor should they also see NPP as a threat because elections in Meghalaya are totally different.
â€œI keep telling you that elections are totally different in Meghalaya. People of Meghalaya when they decide to vote for any candidate, it is done according to their own choice, according to their relationship, their closeness with that particular candidate â€“ so the question of party here is secondary but primarily, I am telling you that winning election in the state of Meghalaya, I have seen and I have done my research people does not elect the candidate on the basis of party line but they elect on the basis on their personal line,â€ he said.
