The Congress party is struggling with internal crises in several states, including Punjab and Chhattisgarh. As per the reports, a fresh turmoil is likely to hit the party in Meghalaya as former chief minister Mukul Sangma is likely to jump ship.
Sangma and about a dozen other MLAs of the Congress party from Meghalaya are expected to switch over to the Trinamool Congress, the ruling party in West Bengal, which is trying to expand to other states as well.
As per sources, the TMC, which is seeking to expand its footprints and enter national politics, is in touch with Congress legislators from the northeastern state.
Earlier, a veteran Congress leader from Goa Luizinho Faleiro had quit the party and joined the TMC.
