In a big development from Meghalaya, Trinamool Congress leader and former Chief Minister Mukul Sangma has indicated that two to four MLAs from the party, are ready to jump ships in case they fail to receive party tickets in the Meghalaya General Elections, scheduled next year.

Speaking to the Media, TMC leader Mukul Sangma revealed that at least two to four MLAs from the party have confided in him that if they don’t get party tickets in the upcoming elections they should be allowed to explore other options.

However, Mukul Sangma stated that as a political party it is not binding that every sitting MLAs should be given party tickets, instead the party is guided by the electorates as the party strives to fulfill people’s aspirations.

Mukul Sangma also made a big revelation that, as per their assessment, over two-thirds of the current sitting MLAs in the assembly face heavy challenges of incumbency and if they were supposed to go to the polls now more than two-thirds of the sitting MLAs will lose.
