Congress Leadership Will Inquire Into Meghalaya Exodus, Says Mallikarjun Kharge

Shillong: The Congress is facing an exodus from its own party members across India. The state of Meghalaya is no exception.

Yesterday the former CM of Meghalaya Mukul Sangma along with 11 other MLA's of the Congress party had left the Congress and joined the TMC.

As a result, the Grand Old Party's high command is compelled to act into the matter. Senior Congress leader and the current leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge has said that the party high command is looking into this matter. He accused the outgoing leaders of engaging in a conspiracy.

"This is happening like a conspiracy. People of our party, especially our party president, Rahul Gandhi, and others in the high command, are looking into it. They will make a decision," a news agency quoted Kharge.

In spite of these latest setbacks, Kharge has pledged that the opposition would keep their differences aside and fight unitedly against the BJP Government at the centre.

A senior Congress leader stressed the fact that the primary goal of the opposition parties is to remove the BJP from power despite their ideological differences. He further added that confrontations between parties were not new and that they had always taken place.

Of late, several Congress leaders have been poached by the TMC not only in Meghalaya but in other states as well. Apparently, many Congressmen are not happy with the state of the party and some have even expressed displeasure with the functioning of the party. Reforms at the party starting from the grassroots level have also been demanded.

This is arguably one of the most turbulent phases of the Grand Old Party. It is essential for the party to fix their internal issues and emerge as a robust alternative to the current ruling dispensation.

However, for this to ever happen, the domino effect facing the party needs to stop.
