Ex-Meghalaya CM Mukul Sangma Joins TMC With 12 MLAs; Trinamool Now Main Oppn in State

In a huge setback for the Congress in Meghalaya, 12 of the 17 party MLAs joined the Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Wednesday, top sources said. The 12 MLAs also include former Meghalaya CM Mukul Sangma.

Sangma, the Leader of the Opposition in the assembly, was reportedly unhappy with the Congress’s top leadership. Reports suggested that Sangma felt cornered at the party.

News18 had earlier reported that Sangma had visited Kolkata and met top TMC leaders during his stay. He is also close to political strategist Prashant Kishore and sources said they both also held a meeting in the city.

While the former senior Congress leader had initially stated that he is not quitting the party, sources said that his differences with Congress have increased. If Sangma switches sides, 13 MLAs from his side will also follow suit.
