Must read

Shillong, July 6: Congress chief and former Shillong MP Vincent H Pala has asked the newly elected MP from Tura, Saleng A Sangma, to repay what the BJP and its allies did to the Congress in Garo Hills.

Stating that Saleng’s victory in Garo Hills has changed the dynamics of politics in Meghalaya, Pala said, “I remember when I first took over as the president; almost a year we faced a lot of challenges. People said that Congress is a sinking ship and that it cannot be revived back…Hundreds of my friends in the Youth Congress in MPCC left the Congress and joined the greener side of politics but today with Saleng’s success from Garo Hills, the dynamics of politics in Meghalaya has changed.”


Speaking at a programme to felicitate Sangma for his landslide victory from Garo Hills region, Pala said what was five years before, what was five months before, today is a different scenario of politics in Meghalaya.


He said that four months before the election, they were begging people to join the Congress but those people laughed at them but today the same people are begging to come back to the party. “The reason being many people and parties are fighting elections for their own interest… the interest to do business, interest to serve for particular religious, interest to serve for particular community, interest for there areas and for their constituencies,” he claimed.

The Congress chief further slammed the BJP and its allies for targeting the Congress and said it is high time for Saleng to repay what they have done to the party in Garo Hills. “They targeted us but today with Saleng’s winning I think they forgot themselves and today I think it is high time for Saleng to repay what they have done to us in Garo Hills,” he said.
