The Congress emerged as the single-largest party in Meghalaya by winning 22 seats while Sangma’s NCP was a distant second with only 14 mlas.
A Congress-led Meghalaya Democratic Alliance government under D.D. Lapang, a veteran politician, has taken over in Shillong. As of now, the coalition looks stable with 42 mlas supporting it. But given the state’s record of frequent toppling of regimes, nothing is impossible.
