Meghalaya strongman P.A. Sangma’s two daughters are called Agatha and Christie. But there was no mystery in his announcement today that Agatha would be the National Congress Party’s candidate for the May 22 Lok Sabha byelection for the Tura seat.
Though Sangma claimed that Agatha’s candidature was not “dynasty politics”, it won’t take a Hercule Poirot — the famed detective created by the queen of thriller Agatha Christie — to put two and two together.
After all, Sangma has already facilitated the entry of his two sons – Conrad and James – into politics. (The Telegraph)
