The Meghalaya unit of Indian National Congress (INC) has received yet another major blow after its youth wing president Richard M Marak submitted his resignation letter on Friday.
Marak – the Meghalaya Pradesh Youth Congress (MPCC) chief, submitted his resignation to India Youth Congress president Srinivas BV.
Known to be a supporter of Mukul Sangma, who along with 11 other Congress legislators joined Trinamool Congress (TMC), Marak cited “structural defect” in the party’s system as a major reason for quitting Congress.
“I have been unhappy with the party for quite some time now due to the way the INC has been functioning. There is a structural defect in the INC,” Mr Marak said in his resignation letter.
“This has already been highlighted many times in the past but there has been no attempt to rectify these. Instead, those who have pointed out these defects have been vilified. The last stroke was the appointment of the current president (Vincent Pala) who has no regard for the functioning of the party on Congress principles,” – he further added.
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.
