SHILLONG, July 3: Newly appointed AICC general secretary in-charge for Meghalaya CP Joshi will visit the State on July 5 to resolve the crisis in the Congress party.

It may be mentioned that soon after the party’s loss in the Tura MP election a section of disgruntled party legislators wanted to dislodge Chief Minister Dr Mukul Sangma. The rebellion subsequently subsided after the party high command delayed in sending an observer to the State.

There are reports that during the visit of Joshi to meet the party legislators, the MLAs will air their grievances, but may put up a united front. “Even though Joshi will hear the complaints of the disgruntled legislators against Dr. Sangma, the visit of the AICC leader is to ensure unity,” sources said. “I don’t think that anything will change with the visit of the leader from Delhi. He (Mukul) will remain as our leader and lead us in the 2018 Assembly elections,” sources added. After Joshi returns to New Delhi, the grievances of the legislators will be communicated to the Congress high command. However, the much awaited Congress Legislature Party (CLP) meeting has not been convened yet. It may be mentioned that last month Dr Sangma had said that he would convene a CLP meeting shortly. But with just a day left for the arrival of Joshi, there are no indications that it would be held.
