EXCLUSIVE: Senior Congress Leader Approached Me On Behalf Of BJP, Says Former Meghalaya CM Mukul Sangma

In an Exclusive interview to India Ahead, Sangma explained why he decided to leave the Congress along with 11 other MLAs to merge with the Trinamool Congress.

New Delhi: Former Meghalaya Chief Minister Dr Mukul Sangma dropped a bombshell when he said that in 2015 he was approached by a senior Congress leader on behalf of someone from BJP, to convince him to switch over.

In an Exclusive interview to India Ahead, Sangma explained why he decided to leave the Congress along with 11 other MLAs to merge with the Trinamool Congress.

Talking about the efforts he put in to establish the Congress in Meghalaya, he says, “In 1999, when PA Sangma was compelled to leave the party and float his own party, the entire Congress was taken away by him. It was only this Dr Mukul Sangma and few other friends who decided to stay back”.

Coming down heavily on the Congress party he said, “you are betraying the karykarta if you don’t fulfill your promise with your laidback attitude of humaara kya jaata hai “.

Taking potshots at the Gandhis he added, “people who have entitlement will never understand the pain”.

On being asked why he joined the TMC, the former 2-time CM of Meghalaya said, “we want to explore the possibility of looking at strengthening the leadership of AITC by regaining our strength and to give TMC a pan India presence and acceptability.”

Reacting to Congress calling the exodus a conspiracy, he said, “There are conspirators within the Congress, not those who are leaving the party. Congress is filled with infiltrators”.
