Guwahati: Shillong’s Member of Parliament and a senior member of the Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC), Vincent Pala has expressed that he is not “keen” to take charge of the MPCC as the new chief.
As per reports, Pala claimed that being in New Delhi, it will be difficult for him to look in the “affairs of Meghalaya”. He also stated that if the party leadership at the centre decides to put him the chief’s post he might not be able to decline as well
MP said that this was because he was very “junior” as compared to many other Congress leaders in the state. He said that he would even be more happy if the current president of the MPCC, Celestine Lyngdoh is given the extension on the post.
It may be mentioned that the are several reports that the All India Congress Committee has been reshuffling presidents of several states in order to revive. Among them Meghalaya is one.
