New Delhi: Former Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul Sangma announced decision to go with the Trinamool Congress.

Slamming the party, he said that “Congress has failed to play the role of the main opposition party in the country”.

He said this  during a media briefing in Shillong.

“A complete sense of commitment towards serving the people has brought us to take this decision. In 2018 Assembly elections, we were confident of forming govt but we could not. Again, post-poll there were activities to poach our members,” he said.

He also said that, “this group of 17 have, collectively demonstrated our commitment…the commitment towards the state has superseded everything else…we are failing in our duty as far as the role of the opposition is concerned.”

Earlier, Trinamool Congress sources informed that 12 out of 17 Congress MLA from Meghalaya have joined Trinamool Congress.

Notably, Congress General Secretary KC Venugopal on November 18 held a meeting at AICC headquarters in New Delhi, which was attended by Manish Chatrath to evaluate to party’s performance in the recently concluded by-polls in Meghalaya.

The meeting was also joined by other party leaders of the state including MPCC President Vincent H Pala, CLP leader Mukul Sangma, MPCC working president M Arnpareen Lyngdoh, Secretary AICC in-charge Manipur Charles Pyngrope, MPCC working presidents Marthon Sangma and James Lyngdoh.
