SHILLONG: The State Congress has refused to accept that Ranikor MLA MM Danggo will be joining NPP saying all the 21 MLAs of the party are intact.
Speaking to media persons here on Wednesday, Congress spokesperson, Zenith Sangma said that nothing could be final in politics even as he added that Danggo was a seasoned and matured politician and he could not take a wrong decision.
“ There must be some other agenda which cannot be spelled out at this moment,” he said
It may be mentioned that MM Danggo recently attended a NPP meeting in Ranikor and asserted that he would join NPP if the NPP-led Government upgraded Ranikor into a civil sub-division.
Stating that some communication has been made to the party leadership in block and unit following the recent developments, he added that it was only the District Congress Committee (DCC) which can dissolve the party blocks
The Congress leader also denied the allegations that MM Danggo was demanding Civil Sub division for Ranikor as he claimed that Danggo always wanted an administrative unit for Ranikor and it was approved immediately.
He said that it was the MUA Government which created South West Khasi Hills District in 2012 and Ranikor area was neglected since the inception of the state adding that the previous government made massive investments in the area in terms of road and 136 kilometer road was sanctioned from Baghmara to Ranikor
Sangma also slammed the NPP for lowering the flag of Congress saying it was an insult to the Congress and all political parties must be respected.
When asked if the MLAs had issues with the party leadership in the state, he said that leadership is decided by all the members of the Congress Legislature Party
When asked if Danggo would be punished for anti-party activities, Sangma said that the matter had to be investigated by the party and then a conclusion would be reached if it was an anti party activity
