The Democratic Alliance Government is getting more secure with the entry of the Ranikor representative of Khasi Hills, Martin M. Danggo, who had resigned from the opposition Congress. The entire Congress unit of the Ranikor Block had resigned en masse. The Chief Minister Conrad K. Sangma had announced that Ranikor would be upgraded into a Civil Sub-Division to usher in more development process to benefit the people. There has been lack of roads, especially in connecting the trade and market areas which are close to the Bangladesh international border. Martin Danggo had invited peoples advice to be part of his new endeavour. This would help bring the administration closer to the people. With the joining of Martin Danggo to the ruling National People’s Party (NPP), both the Congress and the NPP would be at par with 20 seats each in the Legislative Assembly. The Congress had however denied that Martin Danggo would leave the party.
