Zenith clarifies he is not in MPCC Prez race; AICC to take final call


Congress spokesperson and Rangsakona legislator Zenith M Sangma on Wednesday has clarified that he is not in the race for the post of the Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) president.


“Nobody is in the race,” Sangma said while adding that he is not even an authorized person to talk on the issue.


“The post of the president is much higher than the post I am occupying now so in the right forum this thing will be discussed…,” he said.


Asked, Sangma said it is upto the high command and the president of the All India Congress Committee to decide as to who should be the right person to hold the office of the president of PCC in Meghalaya.


On the demand for upgradation of the Dadenggre Civil Sub-Division to a new district, the Congress leader said that the present government should do proper due diligence as far as the hopes and aspirations of the people are concerned before deciding anything on such matters.


“I am not going to say whether it is required or not but whenever any decision is made by the incumbent government it should be justifiable and should not discriminate against any section of the people in the state,” he asserted.


Meanwhile, AICC in-charge Meghalaya Manish Chatrath said that it will be done soon, even as he mentioned that once the situation improves, he is likely to visit the state.
