In Meghalaya too, the Congress party saw mass exodus of its senior leaders including 12 of its sitting MLAs, including former Meghalaya CM Mukul Sangma, to the TMC.

Former Meghalaya chief minister Mukul Sangma, who quit the Congress and joined the TMC, said: “Slowly Congress leaders from all ranks in Northeast states will leave the grand old party.”

Sangma further stated that there are some leaders in Congress who are the supporters of BJP by heart but they know that in some constituencies there is no chance of winning from BJP and therefore, they show that they are the supporters of Congress.
