A beleaguered Meghalaya chief minister Mukul Sangma Thursday rushed to New Delhi amid growing demand for his ouster. The crisis in the one–year-old Sangma’s government deepens with deputy chief minister Rowell Lyngdoh confirming that Sangma has lost his majority.
“18 Congress legislators have demanded for Sangma’s removal and he (Sangma) has lost his majority,” Lyngdoh told journalists.
The veteran Congress legislator said that the chief minister should immediately convene a Congress Legislature Party (CLP) meeting to resolve the leadership issue.
This is the first time that such a senior minister in the Sangma’s ministry as his deputy came out openly in favour of the demand for convening a CLP meeting.
In fact, the AICC general secretary Dhani Ram Shandil had made it clear that Sangma would complete the remaining term in office till 2013.
However, the rebel Congress legislators led by former chief minister DD Lapang rejected Shandil’s claim and said that they are going to continue to press the party high command. In a faxed message to Sonia Gandhi, Lapang urged her to prevail upon chief minister and direct him to convene a CLP meeting as this only way to settle the issue.
