SHILLONG, June 2: Chief Minister Mukul Sangma outrightly denied that he had sent an SOS to the party high command over the crisis in the state unit.

Sangma, already in a storm due to the subtle rebellious moves by the dissidents, told newsmen here on Thursday, “The communication between the government and the AICC is a routine affair and the actual content of the letter was to inform about the ‘stability of the government”.

“I had only informed them (AICC) about the stability of the government and in fact the communication is a routine exercise,” Sangma said.

A channel on Tuesday reported that Sangma sent a note to the Congress high command saying that a few “dissident” legislators met BJP leaders in a bid to pull down his government.

Referring to the news, Sangma said, “From the way they carried the news, it shows that they don’t have the copy but were able to make sensatiol juicy news.”

He added, “If they have the letter, they would have carried the right content that was in the letter.”

However, he admitted that the BJP is very much there to fish in troubled waters which according to him is not unusual.

The recent humiliating defeat of the Congress in the Tura by-election has triggered the demand for change of leadership by the dissident legislators and some ministers.

Chief Minister Sangma, however, hinted that a CLP meeting will be convened soon to discuss all issues relating to the party and the government.
