Taking strong exception to senior NCP leader and former Speaker P A Sangma's comment that a prime minister should be a member from the Lok Sabha, Meghalaya Congress on Thursday said such remarks are an indication of his "frustration".
"His comments are an indication of extreme frustration. He has no other issue to rake up to get attention," senior Congress leader and deputy chief minister Mukul Sangma said.
The NCP leader was recently critical of the fact that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is not from the Lok Sabha.
"I am a strong believer of the parliamentary system of governance, but in the last several years, I have been a very disappointed man...For years Lok Sabha has failed to produce a prime minister," the former Lok Sabha Speaker had said.
Mukul Sangma said the NCP leader did not find any other issue to rake up.
"He has aired such an unreasonable and illogical remark to attract attention of public," the Congress leader added.
