Meghalaya: Labelling TMC as a Bengal party wrong & misleading, says Manas Bhunia

Newly appointed in-charge of Trinamool Congress Meghalaya unit Manas Bhunia on Tuesday said that labelling the TMC as a Bengal party is wrong and misleading.

Addressing reporters after being appointed as TMC Meghalaya in-charge, MLA and senior cabinet minister Manas Bhunia said that although the foundation of the Trinamool Congress was laid in Bengal, it does not mean that the TMC is a Bengal party.

Bhunia further alleged that this is nothing but misleading propaganda by other parties for political gains.

Talking about Meghalaya, the minister said the TMC has very strong leaders in the hill state in the form of state assembly speaker Charles Pyngrope and former CM Mukul Sangma. Bhunia added that the party is completely dedicated to the people of Meghalaya.

Reacting to a recent claim by state congress president Vincent Pala in which he said that former congress leaders who joined the TMC would leave the party and return home, Manas Bhunia rubbished the claim and called it mere speculation.

Manas Bhunia also said that the people of Khasi and Jaintia Hills are looking for an alternative due to the alleged failure of the government and that the AITC and its leadership in Meghalaya is a definite option.

He said this while replying to a query that while the AITC is expected to make its presence felt in Garo Hills region but the Khasi and Jaintia Hills regions seem to be a uphill climb.

Stating that leader of opposition Mukul Sangma and AITC state president Charles Pyngrope are acceptable to the people of the state, he said they are hopeful and that stage by stage they will move towards the 2023 Assembly elections with a positive outlook.

Bhunia added that party president Mamata Banerjee and general secretary Abhishek Banerjee are in touch with the state party leaders in this regard.
