Shillong: Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee president Lyngdoh on Friday said all five rebel MLAs, who were issued show-cause notices for not attending a review meeting of the UPA’s flagship programmes, have replied and the AICC would take action them.

"I have received replies from all the five MLAs. I will be submitting them to the AICC along with my comments," Lyngdoh, who would leave for New Delhi on Monday, said.

The five Congress MLAs are detractors of Chief Minister Mukul Sangma who are camping in New Delhi to pressurise the AICC for a change in leadership.

AICC in-charge of Meghalaya Dhaniram Shandil and Sanjay Bapna were present at the review meetings skipped by the rebel MLAs last month.

Lyngdoh said their action was against the party’s interest and it was tantamount to showing disregard for the AICC leaders.

Some rebel Congress MLAs are still camping in New Delhi, but have not been able to meet any senior party leader to air their grievances against Chief Minister Mukul Sangma.

The dissident group is unhappy at Mukul Sangma’s 'autocratic way of functioning' and are demanding a change in leadership.

Shandil and Bapna, who visited Meghalaya last week, will also submit a report on the political developments in the state to the party high command.
