Shillong: Amid rife speculations about the differences between newly-elected Congress State president Vincent Pala and Leader of Opposition Dr Mukul Sangma, the latter on Thursday said he will only speak to senior leaders in Delhi about the issues between him and the state party president.
Dr Sangma, who is also a former chief minister of Meghalaya, on Thursday called a press conference and said he will share information “at the appropriate time”.
Dr Sangma’s response comes after reports of an internal feud between the duo surfaced over appointment of Pala as the Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) president.
While refusing to divulge much on the differences, the leader of the opposition said that there were certain issues which “require course correction”. He also maintained that whatever issues there are, they will be “resolved within the four walls of the party”.
The CLP leader also made it clear that he would talk about the issues only with senior AICC leaders. “I wanted to talk to the leaders in Delhi and don’t want to talk to anybody else,” stated Dr Sangma.
“As politicians we need to share certain inputs but timing is important. It is important for us to decide upon the right time to share inputs because we, at the end of the day, represent the people. So the people must know what is on my mind,” clarified Dr Sangma.
It may be mentioned that Dr Mukul Sangma had recently visited Kolkata after which several reports of his meeting with TMC leaders surfaced in the media.
Dr Sangma, however, neither denied nor accepted the report of his recent meetings with TMC leadership.
