Mukul vacates Ampati, retains Songsak

Shillong, March 16: Leader of Opposition Dr. Mukul Sangma has tendered his resignation from Ampati legislative assembly constituency, from where he won on a record margin of over 8000 votes.

Dr. Mukul contested from both Ampati and Songsak during the legislative assembly elections and won from both.

He vacated one seat as rules do not permit an MLA to represent more than one constituency.

Thanking the people of Ampati for allowing him to represent the constituency for six term, he said, “I have done my part and it’s my turn to develop Songsak.”
