Congress MLA AK Mirabai on Monday announced that no more Congress MLAs will leave the party to join the BJP. She also emphasised that she will continue to serve the public by upholding the party ideology which she firmly believes in, setting the record straight on reports of her along with other Congress MLAs joining the BJP.

Mirabai gave the affirmation before leaving for Delhi at Bir Tikendrajit International Airport on Monday when the media sought her opinion concerning the news reports of Congress MLAs joining the BJP.

Mirabai said that she is visiting Delhi to attend the final hearing on the disqualification of 12 parliamentary secretaries which is scheduled on November 9. Along with her, other Congress MLAs will also join the hearing, she said.

“It is unfortunate that such false reports are being circulated around. Being a politician committed to the Congress ideology, I will not do anything that will bring shame upon the party. I have been serving the public as a politician for the last 41 years and will continue to do so by following the Congress ideology,” she declared.

Concerning reports of Congress MLA, DD Thaisi and DK Korungthang joining the BJP, she ascertained that no more Congress MLAs will leave the party to join BJP. Even DD Thaisi and DK Korungthang had assured of not leaving the party at any costs, she added.

Mirabai said that the Congress party has been gearing up to get an absolute majority in the forthcoming election by defeating BJP. The Congress has been discussing how to deal with the financial crisis in the state and soaring of prices in essential commodities, once the party comes into power, she said.

“I assure the people of the state that the Congress party will surely come back to power. The party is putting all efforts and leaving no stone unturned in forming the government by getting an absolute majority in the upcoming election,” she said.
