Senior BJP leader slammed the Congress for politicising the current sensitive in Meghalaya

Shillong, August 19: The Senior BJP leader and  National Council member Mr. Bashailang Khongwir slammed the Congress for politicising the current sensitive issue saying that the Congress is trying to take advantage politically by aggravating the situation right from local to the National level.

The State Congress leader, Shri Mukul Sangma should have worked together with the Government in this time of crisis as a responsible opposition instead of trying to destabalise the government. Shri. Khongwir strongly condemned the statement of AICC General Secretary Randeep Singh Surjewala.

Where in the Congress leader  has branded the local youth as terrorists while saying “how the terrorists covering their faces carrying arms were seen roaming around Shillong “.

This statement of the senior Congress leader is adding fuel to the fire by provoking the already agitated local youth. The congress leaders should have done their homework before before making such remarks which only provoke the youth.

The militancy in northeast had witnessed its peak during congress regime. The congress during its tenure both in the state and centre had done nothing to resolve HNLC issue.

Mr. Khongwir appreciated the prompt responsiveness of the Chief Minister by not sending Police Force to the sensitive areas of the city, which could have aggravated the tense situation, thereby showing good faith in the local people.

In a display of deep faith and goodwill and maturity, the Chief Minister also decided to fulfil the long awaited desire of the locals to remove the CRPF Camp from Mawlai.

Shri Kongwir commended the immediate response of the MDA government by initiating Judicial probe. The present MDA coalition is a non congress coalition so the effort of Mukul Sangma to destabilise the government will be wasted.

Mr. Khongwir  also urged upon all the stake holders not to be rigid and to take advantage of the Peace Committee constituted by the Government, which has never happened during the Congress tenure, because it is only through dialogue that matters can be resolved.

He said that the State Government should now take up the peace talks with the HNLC on a priority basis, especially when the group had in the past, appealed for it with the government.

Khongwir also appeals to all the youth of the state for peace as any form of violence will only hamper society as a whole. “We are already facing economic crisis due to the pandemic and it seems there is no sign of relief yet and the impending third wave looking inevitable,” said Shri Bashai.

This appeal is largely made in the interest of daily wage earners so as to help them survive in these times of economic crisis amidst the covid pandemic, Said Mr Banshailang Khongwir National Council Member of the BJP in the press statement.
