Meghalaya: CM Conrad & Mukul Sangma break political barrier to jointly perform carol ahead of X-Mas

SHILLONG: In a heartening sight, Meghalaya chief minister Conrad K Sanga and the leader of the opposition Mukul Sangma today kept political differences aside as they sung Christmas carols at a pre-Christmas celebration. They were also joined by Metbah Lyngdoh, the Speaker of Meghalaya Assembly.

“Was delighted to join Hon’ble Speaker, Hon’ble Leader of Opposition & Hon’ble MLA in singing the #Christmas carol at the Pre Christmas Celebration joined by our colleagues. #Meghalaya sends its Christmas blessings to each of you,’ CM Sangma tweeted, attaching a video of the performance.

The Meghalaya leaders sung a medley of Christmas hits such as Feliz Navidad, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, et al.

It needs mention here that the musical exploits of CM Sangma, who is a capable guitarist as well as singer, are already quite well known.

Earlier this year, video, shot at an event in Itanagar, showed Conrad Sangma singing Summer of 69 by Bryan Adams. Throughout the video, the Chief Minister can be seen thoroughly enjoying himself during the performance.

Sangma has also wowed audiences with his electric guitar paying from time to time.

Mukul Sangma, also a former CM of the state, along with 11 MLAs recently resigned from the Congress party and joined All India Trinamool Congress.

With 12 MLAs joining TMC, the party has now become the main opposition party in the 60-member Meghalaya Assembly.

Earlier in the day, chief minister Conrad Sangma attended the National Convention on Living Root Bridge-Cultural Landscape in Shillong.

“The Govt is taking the initiative for community, scientific based conservation, research & development of Jingkieng Jri to achieve the UNESCO World Heritage Site nomination,” he tweeted.

It needs mention here that Meghalaya is known as a living root bridge because a number of root bridges are known to exist in the jungles. These bridges are made by Khasi and Jaintia tribes who have mastered the art of wrapping thick roots together to form a structure that has a capacity to hold more than 50 people.
