The Trinamool Congress, the party of Mamata Banerjee, the Chief Minister of West Bengal, India, this time showed great magic in the state of Meghalaya. In one leap, the Trinamool got the status of the main opposition party. Because 12 Congress MLAs have joined Trinamool together. As a result, Mamata’s party rose to the forefront, leaving the Congress behind overnight.
According to Indian media reports, 12 MLAs, including Mukul Sangma, left the Congress and joined the Trinamool Congress on Wednesday evening. As a result of the reshuffle of a dozen MLAs, the number of Congress MLAs was reduced to six.
Mukul was the Chief Minister of Meghalaya from 2010 to 2016. He is currently the Leader of the Opposition in the state. But why did Mukul suddenly decide to leave the Congress? According to sources, a month and a half ago, his opposition leader, Lok Sabha MP Vincent Pala, was made the president of the Meghalaya Provincial Congress. He was angry. Even sources close to him said that Mukul had been cornered inside the Congress for some time.
Meanwhile, Mukul has a good relationship with Prashant Kishore, a grassroots voter. According to that source, PK has done the job of stuffing 12 MLAs in Mukul’s pocket. Mukul also visited Kolkata a few days ago. He also had a meeting with a top Trinamool leader at that time.
Before the 2014 assembly elections, the Trinamool has set a target to increase its power in small states. Local government elections are being held in Tripura on Thursday. The party has also fielded candidates there. In addition, several important leaders from several states have recently joined the Trinamool Congress.
