Where was Mr. Sangma all the while ? Suddenly how come he came to voice about the tribals ?

He, along with the respectable Sharad Pawar were the architects of NCP - a one State entity. He revolted against Madam G. His party is a coalition partner of UPA. His Boss swallowed his pride long ago but Sangma did not.

He saw an opportunity looking at the confusion prevailing in the UPA and wanted to take advantage of that by playing a NE/ Tribal Card.

If he wants to save himself from further humiliation, he would gracefully withdraw his candidature and redeem some respect in the process.

Congress will not only lose tribal support but much moe in the next elections.
