Ampareen expresses disappointment at manner in which Congress’ presidential election

Suspended Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Ampareen Lyngdoh on Thursday expressed disappointment at the manner in which the Congress’ presidential election was held.


Speaking to reporters, Lyngdoh said if a very senior Congressman like Shashi Tharoor sees that there has been some deviation from the prescribed norms, then she would go with him because she knows him personally.

She said it is very sad to see that again this controversy rises; the way it is being handled is what worries her the most. She said, “I wish they would have handled it a little more elegantly.”


Lyngdoh said everybody was expecting that there will be a general revamping of the Congress from the top but what is being discussed in the news it just boils down to a single line “looks like we are crashing down further.”

Lyngdoh said that people like her who are still in the Congress only get reconfirmed that maybe it is time to move on as there is no other way out or no other option.


“As much as we love the Congress, as much as we respect the Congress for its ideologies but when these kinds of controversies come to the forefront then we who are already one leg outside would like to leave gracefully while the going is good. Sad but it is a fact,” she said.
