New Delhi: Following the recent debacle of state governments in Arunachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand under the Congress rule, where party MLAs revolted against the government after which the states saw president’s rule for months, it seems that yet another Indian hill state may face the same situation. This time it may be the turn of Meghalaya.
If sources are to be believed, the Congress rebels have accused the state’s Chief Minister Dr. Mukul M. Sangma of running the government in an autocratic manner. The rebels have accused the chief minister that he was acting in a ‘dictatorial’ fashion and taking decisions unilaterally.
The Congress party has already lost power in Arunchal Pradesh after 9 rebel MLAs out of 27 gave their support to the current CM of the state, Kalikho Pul. However, the party faced almost the same situation in Uttarakhand that witnessed months of President’s rule but the Chief Minister Harish Rawat ultimately succeeded in proving his majority during the floor test.
The state of Meghalaya seems to be facing the same situation, after a section of ministers and MLAs have been pushing for the removal of Chief Minister.
However, according to sources, Congress top guns are taking a serious stock of the situation, especially after experiencing what happened in Arunachal and Uttarakhand.
