Press Trust of India Imphal
Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma Friday said the National People's Party (NPP) would fight for the people of the North-East to give them an effective voice.
Addressing a public meeting at Lamka town in Churanchandpur district, Sangma said since the states of the region have fewer Parliamentary seats as compared to bigger states like Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, "sometimes, Delhi does not take us seriously."

Sangma kickstarted campaign on behalf of Thangmimlen Kipgen, who is contesting on Outer Manipur constituency.
The Meghalaya CM had recently drew praise for taking a strong stand against Citizenship Amendment Bill, which could not be tabled in Rajya Sabha and is destined to collapse with the end of the present term of the Lok Sabha on June 3.
In addition to Meghalaya, the NPP is ontesting general election in other Northeastern states.
