Sangma Meets Jaya Amid Talk of Tribal For President

New Delhi, May 16 : Former Lok Sabha Speaker  P A Sangma on Tuesday met Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and All India  Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam  chief J Jayalalithaa  against the backdrop of him favouring a tribal candidate as the next President.

Sangma and his daughter Agatha Sangma , who is minister of state for rural development, met Jayalalithaa at the state secretariat.

Though the visit was described as a "courtesy call", it assumes significance as the Nationalist Congress Party leader has pitched for a tribal candidate to be fielded in the coming presidential poll.

The member of Parliament from Meghalaya had recently said that even after 60 years of India becoming a republic, no tribal had become the President.
