The National People's Party is a national-level political party in India though its influence is mostly concentrated in the state of Meghalaya. The party was founded by P A Sangma after his expulsion from the Nationalist Congress Party in July 2012.In the 1984 election for the House of Delegates, the NPP won 18 of the 40 seats. Twenty per cent of the registered voters participated in the election, and it was calculated that the NPP became the governing party in the House of Delegates with the support of approximately 7 per cent of the potential Indian electorate. Amichand Rajbansi, leader of the NPP, was appointed chairman of the Ministers' Council and also minister without portfolio in the Cabinet. The party supports the non-violent abolition of all racial, cultural and sexual discrimination. Its view on the right to vote is that all groups should participate in the government.
Sangma who has been a nine-time Member of Parliament, had announced to form a new political party soon after his expulsion from the Nationalist Congress Party in July 2012, when he refused to accept party decision to quit the Indian presidential election, 2012. NPP contested the assembly election of Rajasthan in December 2013, under the leadership of Kirodi Lal Meena, a former BJP member and MP (Independent from Dausa) at the time of election and won four seats.
In the 1989 election, 23,2 per cent of the registered Indian voters went to the polls. Of the total number of registered voters, the NPP drew 5,8 per cent, winning eight seats altogether. Since no party achieved an outright majority in the election, in-dependent leaders as well as smaller parties were once again pressurized into joining the NPP or Solidarity. Following the election, Rajbansi be-came the opposition leader in the House of Delegates after Reddy had gained the support of the majority of members. Early in 1991 Rajbansi once again gained a majority vote in the House of Delegates after a motion of no-confidence against the chairman of the House, Reddy, was introduced. Rajbansi, however, again lost majority support shortly after-wards and Reddy remained as leader of the House.
The party won a seat in 2014 Loksabha elections from Tura and Sangma became MP . After the death of P.A. Sangama form this seat, His son Conrad Sangma won by election held in may 2016. The party had proposed to contest election and expand its base in tribal constituencies of Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, north West Bengal and the Northeast India.
