In connection with the current strife, the AICC leaders have also reportedly summoned the three MPs of the State of which only one MP could meet with the AICC chief so far.
Amidst the hustles of Congress legislators to and fro to Delhi, a couple of ministers who are allegedly in the list of ministers to be sacked are also reportedly camping in the national capital.
It may be noted that the demands of the dissidents group includes reshuffle of incompetent ministers from the Ibobi led Ministry and replacing of MPCC president under the principle of ‘one man one post’.
