The MDCs belonging to the beleaguered Congress in the Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) will soon meet to decide on the latest developments that have plunged the party into chaos with a flurry of resignations and defections.
The anti-defection law does not apply to the district councils, which leaves the Congress vulnerable.
“We saw the exodus of the  Congress MLAs who joined the AITC (Trinamool Congress) and hundreds of other members and office bearers who quit the party but we are yet to decide on the matter,” an MDC who requested anonymity said today.
Echoing similar views to many of the others who quit the party, the MDC said that the future of the Congress in Meghalaya is bleak under the leadership of its president, Vincent Pala.
Pala has been accused by some of favouring only party members who are wealthy or who are close to his family. The MDC reiterated this allegation and said that the MDCs will soon meet and plot their future course of action.
Stating that it is true that Pala is in favour of only the prosperous, the MDC said that they will soon meet together as the party MDCs and take decisions accordingly.
“It is true that we won election from the Congress ticket but the style of functioning of the new president is untenable,” the MDC said.
