 SHILLONG: Senior Congress leader SC Marak on Tuesday said he was yet to receive any information on any dissident activities in the State Congress.

Speaking to reporters, Marak, who is also the Chairman of State Planning Board, said that he was also in the dark about any move to project him as an alternate to the Chief Minister Dr Mukul Sangma.

Marak as the former Chief Minster could complete a full five-year term in the past, a rare distinction he holds in Meghalaya’s volatile political scenario.

Asked whether he has any aspiration to become Chief Minister of the State again, Marak said, “It will depend on circumstances. I am not begging or asking for the post and I am also not aspiring. If such a situation arises, we have the High Command and the legislators to decide on the matter”.

He also said that if there were grievances among Congress legislators, this could be addressed in the Congress Co-ordination Committee meeting.

To a question, Marak said that there were some talks that the ministers were not able to discuss some projects with the Chief Minister, “but I do not know whether it is true”.

Marak said after a gap of ten years, he is still trying to familiarise with the situation as there were many young legislators who were elected during the gap.

Marak could not win consecutively for two terms since 2003.
