Four Members of District Council (MDCs) of the Garo Hills Autonomous District Council (GHADC) have formally joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in a ceremony on November 30.
The four MDCs which include the new deputy chairman, Mettrinson G Momin, amongst others, joined the party in the presence of BJP stalwart, Nalin Kohli, who welcomed them to the party fold.
The other MDCs are former CEM, Boston Marak (UDP), Jimberth Goera Marak (GNC) and Wenison Marak (GNC).
The movement of the MDCs to the BJP has now seemingly confirmed the allegations of the Balachanda MDC, Sofiur Rehman, who earlier through a statement said that the GHADC had seen the BJP support the Congress move in attempting to bring down the NPP led EC a few days ago.
On Wednesday, the GHADC saw high drama after the Congress led Opposition won the election to the deputy chairman against the NPP candidate, Augustine Marak. The election was supposed to be followed by a no confidence vote against the EC. However, fearing the inevitable, the NPP led ruling members staged a walkout.
