Former Meghalaya CM Mukul Sangma Likely To Join Trinamool Congress (TMC); Meghalaya

Top Congress officials in Meghalaya, including former Chief Minister Mukul Sangma and 12 other MLAs, are expected to switch to the Trinamool Congress (TMC).

Along with Sangma, at least 12 other state-level Congress legislators are anticipated to switch to the TMC, West Bengal’s ruling party led by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

On September 21, former Meghalaya Chief Minister and Congress veteran Mukul Sangma met with Trinamool Congress (TMC) general secretary Abhishek Banerjee in Kolkata, sparking suspicion amid reports of a rupture within the party in the northeastern state.

“He was in Kolkata for some work and acknowledged the TMC leadership’s invitation. On September 22, a loyalist from Meghalaya’s Garo Hills region stated, “Nothing much should be read into the meeting.” Dr. Sangma is a Garo Hills indigenous.

According to sources, Sangma, who is now the Assembly’s Leader of Opposition, is dissatisfied with the Congress’ top leadership and feels trapped within the grand old party.

Sangma had previously refuted reports that he had met Abhishek Banerjee, the nephew of Trinamool Congress national general secretary and party supremo Mamata Banerjee, in Kolkata.

Several additional MLAs may abandon Congress if Sangma ultimately switches sides. According to News18, Sangma is expected to make a final announcement soon after meeting with Trinamool leaders in Meghalaya.

Luizinho Faleiro, the former Chief Minister of Goa and a long-time Congress leader, joined the TMC earlier this week. The party has launched its official campaign for the elections in Goa in 2022.
