The meeting, chaired by Meghalaya chief minister Mukul Sangma, also saw All India Congress Committee vice president Rahul Gandhi and Aruchal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president Takam Sanjoy give their deliberations. Sanjoy said that the state governments in the North East have a fear psychosis that they would not get funds while BJP is in power at the Centre. “The shifting of loyalty of Congress MLAs to BJP in Aruchal Pradesh in the me of getting development package from the Centre is just an excuse. The fact is that the present state government is uble to bring any development packages and schemes till date from the Centre,” he added.
