Admitting that there are some issues within the party, senior Congress leader, Ampareen Lyngdoh today stated that the AICC has taken several steps to resolve this issue.

"Yes at the moment there seems to be confusion on the leadership of the Congress party in the AICC. It would be wrong and not in the fitness of things to say that this is all just a gossip. We are hoping that this will be sorted out," Ampareen told reporters here today.

"I don't want that the statement I will make would create more confusion in my own fold. But I am confident that we will be able to put this behind us shortly by taking the right decisions," she added.

On the claim of the NPP that there are many Congress MLAs who are planning to join the party ahead of the 2023 Assembly polls, the senior Congress leader said that it is again not a surprise that what legislators of the current Assembly will do come 2023 adding that there is a lot of speculation floated in the public domain.

She however stated that this entire debate is actually emerging out of one fact that the Congress party at the moment is in all time low in the eyes of the public.

"But we must not forget that most of us are in this party because of our confidence in the leadership and in the constitution of our party. Today we are 19 MLAs who belong to one big party. We will have our own opinions as well. But at the end of the day good sense will prevail because we are guided by a constitution which is pro people," Ampareen stated.

On the rumours of floating of a new party, she said that the question of floating another political party is another big thing and she does do not want to comment at this early stage because it is a big responsibility.
