NEW DELHI, MAY 16 (AGENCIES): | Publish Date: 5/17/2021 1:29:03 PM IST

 Congress MP Vincent Pala has been tipped to take over as Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee president chief in a bid to revive the party’s fortune in the state, The Shillong Times report stated.

Sources that Congress high command, which is clearly getting battle ready for polls in Meghalaya in less than two year’s time, is of the view that Pala is currently the most popular party leader across Khasi-Jaintia Hills and enjoys party workers’ confidence. With Mukul Sangma holding his grip over Garo Hills, the party sources feel that with the three-term MP at the helm Congress would be able to turn the table on the regional parties-BJP satrap currently in power in the state.

Pala, whose stock has risen in the AICC, is most likely to be named as the next state president apparently since the part rank and file is yet to arrive at a consensus on the other contender in the shape of former Assembly Speaker Charles Pyngrope.

Pala, who was earlier non-committal and was biding his time, has now thrown his hat in the ring. The AICC is inclined to back Pala on the expectation that the party might witness a comeback to power in 2023 riding on his leadership qualities and personal popularity.
