Shillong: Not content with poaching 12 MLAs from the Congress, the All India Trinamool Congress (TMC) is in talks with leaders from other political parties as well, said former chief minister Mukul Sangma.
TMC on Thursday emerged out of obscurity to become the main opposition in the state, and in a conversation with EastMojo, Mukul Sangma, who is one of the 12 MLAs to join the party of Mamata Banerjee, said they would let the media know about the upcoming developments.
When asked about Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) president Vincent Pala’s comments that the deserters left Congress because they have run out of power, Sangma told EastMojo there was no dearth of power and could have been in power if they had wanted to.
Responding to comments that joining TMC was ‘suicide’, Sangma said his friends lauded his move. “They said that they are with me and are ready to give whatever as goodwill to support the party. We will form the govt in 2023,” stated Dr Mukul.
