Shillong: The NCP in Meghalaya today merged with National People?s Party (NPP), a newly-formed outfit formed by P A Sangma.

Sangma, who had resigned from NCP as its General Secretary and unsuccessfully contested the Presidential poll against Pranab Mukherjee last month, would be NPP?s president.

Altogether 13 out of 14 NCP legislators, including two of Sangma?s sons Conrad (leader of opposition) and James Sangma, backed their father.
