Sangma team considering future course of action

Ranchi: BJP-backed Presidential candidate P A Sangma today said that he was discussing his future course of action, a day after the Election Commission rejected his plea for a probe into his office of profit charges against UPA nominee Pranab Mukherjee.

“They (EC) have disposed of it yesterday in our absence. My legal team comprising Ram Jethmalani, Subramanian Swami and Satpal Jain are now discussing on our future course of action at Ram Jethmalini?s house,” Sangma told a press conference here when asked whether he would move the Supreme Court.

Sangma met JMM Supremo Shibu Soren, deputy Chief Minister and AJSU party president Sudesh Mahto, Jharkhand Assembly Speaker C P Singh and a host of other leaders and appealed for supporting his candidature in the July 19 elections.
