In a major boost for the Trinamool Congress in Meghalaya, a large number of Congress workers resigned en masse from the party in Garo Hills to join the Mamata Banerjee-led party.

Those who joined the TMC today comprised most of the members of the Meghalaya Pradesh Youth Congress with the TMC claiming at 90% of the former members merging with it. Those that joined the TMC today included youth leaders like Rupa Marak, Rupert Sangma, Adamkid Sangma, Saljagringgrang Marak as well as former MPYC president, Richard Marak.

The move comes at a time when 12 MLAs of the Congress-led by former CM Mukul Sangma have already joined the TMC.

Originally the newly inducted members of the TMC had planned a show of strength by taking out a car and bike rally through Tura. However, given the traffic situation in the town of Tura, they decided against the move.
