Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) president Vincent H Pala on Thursday said that the party does not project a chief minister's face in advance.
“In Meghalaya, we don’t project a chief minister's candidate in advance. Once the legislators are elected, they will decide as to who will be the chief minister,” Pala told reporters.
Stating that there is no dearth of competent leaders in Congress, the Shillong MP said, “We have enough people to be the chief minister. So normally we don’t project a chief minister's face but definitely, the people will give a mandate and the chief minister will be chosen by the legislators.”
It can be noted here that the Congress in Meghalaya had suffered a huge setback after 17 legislators deserted the party and joined other political parties.
Pala said all those who were involved in many scams are no longer with Congress.
He said therefore if Congress is given a chance it will ensure Meghalaya has a corruption-free government.
