Former Meghalaya Chief Minister Dr Mukul Sangma, who is also the leader of opposition in the state assembly, will be travelling to Delhi tomorrow in an apparent attempt to seek the intervention of the Congress's top leadership "to resolve" certain internal issues. The visit comes amid speculation that Mr Sangma is upset with the party after Vicent H Pala was made the state Congress chief and he is on his way out along with a dozen MLAs to join the Trinamool Congress.

As per news report of NDTV, While Dr Sangma has not denied the speculation, he has claimed it's "too pre-mature" to second-guess. Wait to hear from the "horse's mouth", he said. A close aide of Dr Sangma told NDTV that the Congress right now has 17 MLAs in Meghalaya. With elections due in 2023, the MLAs would like to retain their seats, so Dr Sangma will need at least 12 MLAs with him to not attract the anti-defection law. The state assembly has 60 seats. "I will be travelling to Delhi on Sunday...there is a mechanism. We will try to resolve all issues," Dr Sangma told reporters on Friday. "That particular presumption and assumption is too premature (about him along with other colleagues leaving the Congress). I have always maintained that I should not be a victim of pessimism," he said.
