Shillong: All India Congress Committee (AICC) media coordinator, Bobbeeta Sharma today said that former Chief Minister of Meghalaya, Mukul Sangma has made the “greatest political blunder of his life” by joining the All India Trinamool Congress (AITC).
“With all due respect to him, I think he has made the greatest political blunder of his life by joining the TMC,” Sharma told reporters.
She also reminded that the late Purno Agitok Sangma had also joined the Trinamool Congress (TMC) but their friendship did not last long as it died down and said, “Even in those time, it was realized that the people of Meghalaya will never accept TMC because it is an outsider party.”

Sharma said that the Trinamool Congress will not win many seats in the coming elections.
“We have got feedback that they are not going to win many seats in Garo Hills and I don’t think they are going to make any impact at all in the Khasi Hills region. So I feel he (Mukul) has made the biggest political blunder by leaving the Congress party,” she added.
Mukul, who is currently the leader of the opposition, will be contesting from two seats – Songsak and Tikrikilla – in the upcoming elections.
