Meghalaya Congress senses tension, as senior legislator hints moving out

Senior legislator Prestone Tynsong has expressed discontent with the party’s functioning and hinted at moving out of Congress in Meghalaya.

The ruling Congress in Meghalaya might have to face some troubles, as senior legislator Prestone Tynsong is indicating that he might quit the party.

Prestone does not seem to be happy with the party’s functioning and has hinted that he will quit the party to join some other. Significantly, National People’s Party (NPP) leadership has been claiming that Tynsong is capable of leading the state.

Tynsong in his statement to the press said that “I have nothing against the Congress party, but the present leadership in the state is determined to destroy the party, I will make an announcement when I join the other party.”

He also complained that the block unit in Pynursla constituency was dissolved without his knowledge and alleged that he was kept in dark.

Other than Prestone Tynsong Congress MLA from Mawkyrwat and senior party leader Rowell Lyngdoh have also been more than once noticed to be inclined towards the NPP. According to the sources, Sniawbhalang Dhar, Ngaitlang Dhar and suspended Congress legislator PN Syiem will also be joining other parties.

Meghalaya will be holding the assembly elections next year and at this point, if the members are planning to quit the party, the ruling Congress may face difficulties during the polls.
