Shillong: MPCC president Vincent Pala on Friday said the Congress high command isn’t in favour of the five MLAs of Congress Legislature Party (CLP) joining the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA).  

Pala said the Congress MLAs did not consult him when making the decision to support the MDA government.

The state Congress president said it is likely that the five MLAs may be suspended and a show-cause notice issued to them.

A meeting of the Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee was held here wherein two of the five MLAs, Mohendro Rapsang and Mayralborn Syiem, were part of the meeting. Pala said the two MLAs who were present today have asked for more time to discuss the issue.

MLA Mayralborn Syiem said, “We will be with the Congress and leave it upon them to decide. If they feel we are an asset for the party, then take a decision wisely and in a balanced manner.”

He added that in the MPCC meeting, it was decide that strong action must be taken against the five MLAs.

“Punishing them is above my jurisdiction, it’s upon the higher authorities at the AICC level to punish them. Following this press conference, I will be sending the views and suggestions to the high command,” he said.
