Central Govt. advises imposition of president''s rule in Meghalaya
( Mar 18 2009 )

New Delhi, Mar 18 (ANI): A day after Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) led Meghalaya Progressive Alliance Government in Meghalaya narrowly survived a trust vote in the State Assembly, the Central Government on Wednesday recommended President''s rule in the state.

Briefing reporters here after a meeting of the Union Cabinet, Home Minister P. Chidambaram said: "The cabinet received a report from the (Meghalaya) governor (RS Mooshahary) on the events yesterday. He has stated that there''s a breakdown in the constitutional machinery and has recommended president''s rule. The report has been accepted and a recommendation made to the President."

The NCP government in Meghalaya was degraded to a minority on March 11 after two MLAs from Khun Hynniewtrep National Awakening Movement (KHNAM) Limison Sangma and Ismail R Marak withdrew his support.

Concerned over the political situation in the state, Chief Minister Donkupar Roy said last week he does not want Meghalaya to face another election.

Blaming the Congress for the political crisis in the state, Roy said on March 16, "''I fear that the Congress is eventually moving towards that direction, that is, political confusion and turmoil, paving the way for President''s Rule in the state. If this happened, that would be very unfortunate." (ANI)
