Meghalaya BJP hits back at its ally NPP

Shillong, Jan 29 (UNI) The Meghalaya unit of the BJP on Wednesday said that it was surprising to hear the National People’s Party (NPP) statement that the saffron party and the Congress were sharing the same bed.
''The NPP president (W Kharlukhi) will do well to remember that NPP elected members are old wine in a new bottle,” state BJP president Ernest Mawrie said.
Mawrie was reacting to Kharlukhi’s statement who had accused the BJP of cheating its ally the NPP of cheating following the political drama in Garo Hills Autonomous District Council (GHADC).
Mawrie said that the member of the district council of any political party can always maintain his or her identity in the council and when any member is not satisfied with the style of functioning of the ruling side, who desire to cling to their seats even after being reduced to minority the door is always opened for the aggrieved member to align with the party having the majority in the Council.
“His statement becomes much less convincing as the pot calling the kettle black fogging the issues with unrelated information which are total nonsense, trying to portray the half-truth proclamation as reality,” Mawrie said.
The state BJP president also said that his party is less likely to be vulnerable to attempts of being divided, at the state or the council level.
Mawrie said that the challenge to replace the present Executive Committee, with little or no authority, is an endeavour to put things right in the affairs of the GHADC, indefinitely.
“The deceit of the present EC may be better known to the people of the region and let the people know what has occurred,” he said.
