PA Sangma meets Jayalalithaa

P A Sangma met Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa in the backdrop of him favouring a tribal candidate as the next president.



Chennai: Former Lok Sabha Speaker P A Sangma on Tuesday met Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa in the backdrop of him favouring a tribal candidate as the next president.
Sangma and his daughter Agatha Sangma, who is Minister of State for Rural Development, met Jayalalithaa at the Secretariat.

Though the visit was described as a "courtesy call", it assumes significance as the NCP leader has pitched for a tribal candidate to be fielded in the coming Presidential poll.

The Meghalaya MP had recently said even after 60 years of India becoming a republic, no tribal had become the president.
