Just before the start of Monsoon session of Parliament, political turbulence in Congress- ruled Meghalaya has gathered steam, with newly-elected MP from Tura, Conrad Sangma preparing to focus the alleged irregularities of the State government in the floor of the house.
Significantly, Sangma , who is the son of late Purno Sangma, has joined hands with BJP by inducting his party National Peoples Party (NPP) in the newly-formed North East Development Alliance (NEDA), a grouping of non-Congress party in the North Eastern states.
‘I have decided to raise the matter of sugar scam in State in Parliament as the justification given by the State government is not acceptable,’ Conrad said.
In fact, since BJP stormed into power in Assam, the saffron brigade has set its eye on politically unstable Meghalaya.
The dissident activities in Congress against the dictatorial functioning of the present Chief Minister Mukul Sangma has gathered momentum with most of the rebel leaders camping in Delhi to meet Congress Chairperson Sonia Gandhi for the ouster of the present Chief Minister.
