The decision was taken at the party's central election committee meeting, party spokesperson James K Sangma said.

The ruling Congress has already nominated Chief Minister Mukul Sangma’s wife and legislator Dikkanchi Shira to contest the by-poll.

The BJP has so far not decided on whether to field any candidate even as regional parties have decided not to put up any contestant.

The by-poll was necessitated following the death of Purno A Sangma.
