After the sudden political development, Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) is now planning to revive back the party and it’s position ahead of Meghalaya elections, slated to be held in 2023.
The Congress Legislature Party (CLP) led by leader Ampareen Lyngdoh conducted a meeting on Thursday, to discuss the strategies.
Addressing the reporters after the meeting, Lyngdoh asserted “We are neither disheartened nor looking back but going forward with a new zeal to ensure the party is revived again. We will induct new faces which will be beneficial for the party in the long run.”
The CLP leader further added that supporters of 12 legislators joined TMC have also been sued from the party, in order to ensure that no further dilution takes place.
Meanwhile, the party is planning to file a petition seeking disqualification against the two remaining MLAs – Charles Pyngrope and Shitlang Pale on December 10.
“We will get not less than five seats in Garo Hills. Things will improve further down the line,” – claimed Lyngdoh.
Its worthy to note that the former Meghalaya CM, Mukul Sangma along with 11 of the 17 Congress legislators in the state joined the Trinamool Congress (TMC) – an overnight development which transformed TMC as the principal opposition party in the northeastern state of Meghalaya.
