As the political parties in Meghalaya roll their dice for the Ranikor bypoll slimming the chances of the National People’s Party for an easy victory, the NPP is however confident of winning both the Ranikor and South Tura seats.
NPP state president, WR Kharlukhi expressing confidence has said that for the party every election is a tightly contested event but when the results are out it’s a different ball game.

Congress leader and MLA from Mawryngkneng, David Nongrum asserted that the Congress will give a tough fight to Conrad Sangma and if they continue to work hard, the party would be able to sail through in the elections.
