People Democratic Front (PDF) leader Pynshngain N Syiem yesterday said fielding of ex-bureaucrats and engineers will not help the Congress win in the ensuing Assembly polls in Meghalaya.

"Former bureaucrats and engineers have absolutely no political and social background so they will not win as they have no close relationship with the people at the grassroots," he told reporters after the PDF's general conference meeting.He was reacting to the claims of the ruling Congress that it has got better candidates in the constituencies represented by its former sitting legislators, who left the party and joined other political parties for re-election ahead of the upcoming Assembly polls."This strategy of the Congress will not have any impact in the upcoming polls. I tell you it will not work because we need law makers and not engineers. The Congress is just making claims for something that will never happen," he added.Altogether seven former legislators of the Congress have resigned as members of the current ninth Meghalaya Legislative Assembly.Apart from Syiem, the others include former deputy chief minister Rowel Lyngdoh, three former ministers Prestone Tynsong, Comingone Ymbon, Sniawbhalang Dhar and Ngaitlang Dhar have joined the NPP and AL Hek also a former minister has joined the BJP.UNI RRK AND
