Meghalaya DYCM dares BJP to quit govt

Meghalaya DYCM dares BJP to quit govt

Shillong, Sep 6 (UNI) Terming the BJP’s threat to withdraw support to the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government as a “political gimmick”, Deputy Chief Minister and National People’s Party (NPP) national vice-president, Prestone Tynsong challenged the saffron party to quit the government.

“The stand of the MDA government under the leadership of Conrad Sangma and my stand are very clear, if they want to pull out of the MDA government we welcome that but it seems that it is already late for them,” Tynsong said on Monday.

“They are part of the MDA. This is a political gimmick created by the so called high-command of the BJP. I am not surprised they keep saying that they will pull out of the government. So I say it is purely a political gimmick,” he reiterated.

Accusing the BJP of using the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) as its “political tools”, the Deputy Chief Minister said, “I would like to advise the BJP why not first ask ED and CBI to be in place and if you (BJP) are so clean, if you are just like a saint. If that is the case why do you have to pull out of the government.

“It seems they are using CBI and ED as their political tool as alleged by the AAP and the TMC,” Tynsong said.

On Saturday, BJP's National Vice-President and Meghalaya in-charge, M Chuba Ao had threatened to withdraw support to the National People’s Party (NPP)-led MDA government following the spate of allegations against the government.

Ao had also revealed that the party has instructed its workers to find documentary evidence on the scams against the present government and once that is made available, the party would make the next move.

“Our people are on the job . and then the ED and the CBI would move in to investigate the charges,” the BJP leader further said,” the top BJP leader said.
