While Dr. Mukul Sangma, the former Chief Minister of Meghalaya, has not disputed the rumours, he has stated that it is “too early” to speculate. He advised waiting for word from the “horse’s mouth.”
Former Meghalaya Chief Minister Dr. Mukul Sangma, who is also the state assembly’s leader of the opposition, will fly to Delhi tomorrow in an apparent bid to enlist the help of the Congress’ top leadership “to address” internal difficulties.
The visit comes amid reports that Mr. Sangma is dissatisfied with the party after Vicent H Pala was appointed state Congress head, and that he, along with a dozen other MLAs, is planning to switch to the Trinamool Congress.
“I’ll be in Delhi on Sunday…a there’s the system in place. We would make every effort to fix outstanding difficulties “On Friday, Dr. Sangma assured reporters.
“That specific assumption and presumption are far too soon (about him along with other colleagues leaving the Congress). I’ve always believed that I shouldn’t succumb to pessimism “he stated
Dr. Sangma, when asked about the possibility of joining the All India Trinamool Congress (TMC), stated, “…you know you have to wait for the moment, if it’s coming from the horse’s mouth, you give credibility, it’s a question of giving weightage to news when it comes from the proper source.”
Despite earlier reports that Chief Minister Mukul Sangma was dissatisfied with the congress party, Meghalaya President Vincent H Pala claimed Mukul Sangma is a dear friend of his and that he would never leave the party at this time.
Dr. Sangma, according to Pala, is a seasoned politician who will never leave the party at this time. “He understands the importance of Congress in Meghalaya.”
