The Home Minister said that presently he is in Garo Hills and the meeting would take place on his return to the state capital.
Sangma said that he has been reading about the demands to oust him from his cabinet berth even as he said that soon the coalition partners in the MDA will sit together and discuss the matter.
When asked if Chief Minister Conrad Sangma had spoken to him on the demands of the coalition partners to remove him from the Home portfolio, he said that the former has not discussed the matter so far with him.
There are many other pressing issues that need the attention of the Chief Minister I am very sure,” Sangma said.

These demands have come from the United Democratic Party, the People’s Democratic Front and lone Khun Hynñiewtrep National Awakening Movement, legislator Adelbert Nongrum, who are part of the ruling coalition.
