Congress rushes top leaders to Meghalaya to explore govt formation possibilities

With election trends in Meghalaya projecting that the Congress could emerge as the single-largest party in the state, the party has rushed two senior leaders to the northeastern state to explore possibilities of forming a government.

According to sources, senior Congress leaders Ahmed Patel and Kamal Nath left for Shillong this morning to work out possible tie-ups with independents in Meghalaya to form a government there. They would land in Shillong post noon and will hold discussions with party leaders there.

The Congress currently rules Meghalaya and is set to emerge as the single largest party in the state, according to trends available for most of the seats in the state. The Congress's move comes in the wake of criticism in the past that the party was caught “napping” in Goa and Manipur, where despite emerging as the single-largest party it failed to form governments there.
