Meghalaya Politics: Will Tikrikilla be under BJP bastion amidst potential threats?

Tura, February 4, 2018

With BJP leaving no stone un-turned to open an account in the one of the most sought after seats in Garo hills, Tikrikilla, it seems the same will not be a cake walk for them given the number of aspirants for the seat.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) two days ago announced its first list of candidates for the state of Meghalaya answering the one question that was on everyone’s lips – who will represent Tikrikilla? The answer according to the BJP was former MLA and senior leader, KC Boro, though the question now hangs as to what his rival ticket aspirants will do.

To the uninitiated, the Tikrikilla seat has been one of the targets of the BJP to open their account in Garo Hills this coming election and saw as many as 3 aspirants – including the runner up in the seat the last election – Ruhinath Rabha.

The seat is expected to be fought between independent MLA, Michael T Sangma, the Congress represented by Jimmy D Sangma (brother of MLA Limison D Sangma of Raksamgre), KC Boro, a host of independent candidates including former GSU president of Tikrikilla, Walseng N Sangma as well as Ruhinath, if he decides to contest.

Added to the mix is old Congress warhorse and former MLA from Rajabala, Sayeedullah Nongrum who this time is also contesting from the constituency.

“It’s going to be a huge call to say who will win as all the aspiring candidates look well prepared. Though the BJP may appear to be ahead for the seat, internal bickering could lead to the entire house toppling,” said a local resident when asked.
