Mithi represents Congress in Mongolian People’s Party meet

MUKUT Mithi, a senior Congress leader from North-East India, has been on a visit to Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia to take part in the 90th anniversary meet of Mongolian People’s Party. Mithi is representing the Indian National Congress to take part at the event at Ulaanbaatar, situated in the valley of Tuul river and surrounded by mountains. Mithi would be visiting Mongolia between February 28 and March 2, 2011.
Mongolian People’s Party, earlier known as Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party, was founded in 1921 and remained in power in most of the last 90 years. Mongolia is a landlocked country in Central Asia and is bordered by Russia to the north and the People’s Republic of China to the south, east and west.
This is the second time in less than three months that Mithi, a former Arunachal Pradesh chief minister, was nominated by the Congress Party to represent it at key political event abroad. During the 6th General Assembly of International Conference of Asian Political Parties (ICAPP) held in the Cambodian capital city of Phnom Penh on December 2-3, 2010, Mithi represented the Congress and spoke on the occasion.
Interestingly, a Chess tournament named after 90th anniversary of the Mongolian People’s Party took place in ministry of foreign affairs and trade, Mongolia on February 25-27, 2011.
