including former CM, a dozen MLAs will leave ‘hands’, this party will create a ‘stampede’
From Punjab to Chhattisgarh, the Congress, which is battling with mutual discord, is going to get a big setback from another state. Former Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul Sangma and about a dozen MLAs from the northeastern hill state may soon leave the Congress and join Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress. Some reports say that former Chief Minister Mukul Sangma, who is now the Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly, is unhappy with the Congress leadership and feels that he has been sidelined in the old party.
Recently, Sangma had also expressed displeasure over the appointment of Lok Sabha MP Vincent H Pala as the party’s state unit president. Not only this, he also stayed away from two major programs of the party mainly with the MLAs of Garo Hills region. Sangma had earlier denied reports of his recent meeting with Trinamool Congress national general secretary and party supremo Mamata Banerjee’s nephew Abhishek Banerjee in Kolkata.
However, after Sushmita Dev’s visit to Meghalaya, the discussion increased that Sangma is going to join TMC. Let us inform that in August itself, Sushmita Dev left the Congress and joined TMC. If Sangma quits Congress, many other MLAs may also quit the party. A News18 report said that Sangma may make a final announcement after holding talks with Trinamool leaders in Meghalaya.
Let us inform that since coming to power in Bengal for the third time in a row, the Trinamool Congress is in the race of recruitment and burglary. Mamata Banerjee has made her national ambitions clear and many leaders, mostly from the Congress, have moved to the Trinamool Congress in recent times. Even some BJP leaders, including former Union Minister Babul Supriyo, have returned home to the TMC. Former Goa Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Luizinho Faleiro was on Wednesday inducted into the TMC in Kolkata.
