Pocket-Sized Veto?

Does P.A. Sangma have a larger design in throwing his lot with Sharad Pawar and Tariq Anwar? Or has he got his ca lculations completely wrong? As always, opinion is divided across the seven states of the North-east.

According to some, Sangma, who’s had a meteoric rise to the top in just over a quarter century of politics, has over-reached himself in rebelling against the Congress high command. Others, particularly in his home-turf of Garo Hills, view his move with some admiration. The truth, perhaps, lies somewhere in between.
