SHILLONG, April 16: Turbulence in the Meghalaya state congress has resurfaced again. Eight MLAs, holding the rank of chairmen and parliamentary secretaries, spearheaded by Mukul Sangma baiter, have already written to the President of the Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC), DD Lapang, expressing their disappointment on the style of functioning of the Chief Minister.
A well placed source in the State Congress told this correspondent that besides the eight sigtories hailing from Khasi Jaintia Hills, more elected MLAS from Garo Hills are expected to come with an official complaint against Mukul Sangma in the days to come.
“A senior Minister of the present Cabinet is behind the move made by the MLAs against the Chief Minister,” informed a source, adding, “Mukul Sangma has lost the trust of his own confidante.”
One of his confidantes is Ronnie V Lyngdoh who is part of the seven sigtories of the letter. Ronnie V Lyngdoh, PN Syiem, Comingone Ymbon, Celestine Lyngdoh, Robinus Syngkon, Kennedy Khryiem, Justin Mukhim in their joint letter accused the Chief Minister of being insensitive to the issues that they have been trying to take up.
“They spoke about the Chief Minister’s attitude,” stated a source and a senior functiory of the State Congress party. However, sources said Mukul Sangma, notwithstanding his alleged arrogance, still has a grip in the AICC.
