The war of words between the Meghalaya Congress & Mukul Sangma continues unabated. Meghalaya Congress has hit out at TMC leader Mukul Sangma’s statements accusing the Congress party of betraying the people of the state by extending its support to the NPP-led MDA government.
Congress MLA PT Sawkmie said that the TMC instead is more desperate as they had thought of controlling the Congress after the split, thinking that the
Opposition tag would shift to the defectors. Sawkmie maintained that Congress is still the Opposition party in the state. Sawkmie added that there cannot be 2 opposition parties in the same House in the form of Opposition A or Opposition B.
PT Sawkmie maintained that Congress has extended support to the government only for the sake of the betterment of the people and resolving public issues.
Meanwhile, Rambrai Jyrngam MLA Kimfa Marbaniang said that Congress is not desperate to support the MDA government. Marbaniang said that those who have made such accusation have a better understanding as to who have betrayed the people. The Congress MLA said that all the party MLAs are intact and would work for the betterment of people.
The five Congress MLAs a few days had visited Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad Sangma and offered their ‘devoted’ support to the Conrad Sangma led MDA govt for the betterment and development of Meghalaya. Reacting to the Congress MLAs visit the TMC leader had commented that the visit was an indication that the remainder of Meghalaya Congress MLAs were growing confused and desperate.
