NPP rules out Cong revival
SHILLONG: The National People’s Party (NPP) has said it would be difficult for even AICC chief Rahul Gandhi to revive the party in Meghalaya as well as the country.
The statement of the NPP state president, WR Kharlukhi, was in the context of the scheduled visit of AICC spokesperson Gaurav Gogoi to Shillong on Saturday to address media persons.
The visit was, however, cancelled.
Kharlukhi observed that the Congress was badly beaten in the two by-polls and “it is quite natural for leaders to visit after the loss”.
He said the revival of the party in the state would not be possible if Mukul Sangma remained at the helm in Meghalaya and “that is evident from the current state of affairs”.
“Many leaders who have experienced working with him are leaving the party and if the party removes Mukul Sangma, there will be no Congress in Meghalaya,” the NPP leader said.
“Not just Gaurav Gogoi, even Rahul Gandhi will not be able to revive the Congress in Meghalaya as Rahul Gandhi himself is having difficulties to survive the politics of the country and if the latest analysis is anything to go by, the BJP at its lowest will get 194 (in the Lok Sabha polls) while the Congress only 83, so where is the Congress,” he added.
