Mukul skips Pala’s felicitation function

The rift in Congress party was made obvious by the absence of senior Congress legislator and Congress Legislative Party (CLP) leader Dr. Mukul Sangma along with his family including Zenith Sangma from Pala’s felicitation ceremony. And Pala acknowledged this and hoped to take the senior leader on board soon.

“Frankly speaking, there is nothing to hide. He did not come here maybe he is not happy with me. But I will take him into confidence,” Pala said.

He, however, assured that he will come up with a solid proposal for which he will take Dr. Sangma into confidence.

Speaking to reporters after the function, Pala said that his utmost priority is to unite the party and to go for mass enrolment in the party to cover every nook and corner.

On being asked about Dr. Sangma, Pala said he considers Dr. Sangma as the ‘boss’ of the party and a friend.

“I want to be transparent in my journey and I don’t want to hide the truth. I will meet him and take the guidance of general secretaries and in charge and many others,” Pala said.
