NPP says BJP welcome to leave MDA govt


National People’s Party (NPP) national vice-president and Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong on Monday said the BJP was welcome to quit the MDA government, but it was already late.

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

He was reacting to a recent statement of the BJP national vice-president in-charge Meghalaya Chuba Ao that within a month’s time the party will take a final call on whether to pull out of the NPP-led MDA government.

The NPP leader said the BJP was trying to play safe.

“They  first wanted to play safe. Play safe in the sense they will set ED and CBI after us which I think people understand. The so-called in-charge of state BJP said “immediately will sit down, we will pull out of the government and then ED and CBI will come,” he said.

Daring the BJP, he said, “In fact I would like to advise him why not you first ask ED and CBI to be in place. Why should you unnecessarily pull out if you are so clean like a saint. If that is the case why do you have to pull out and then again send the CBI or the ED. I call this purely a political gimmick.”

He also echoed the president of the state unit of the NPP, W R Kharlukhi, who said on Sunday that the BJP has substantiated charges by some political parties that it was using the ED and CBI against its opponents.

Tynsong on Monday said that the BJP was using the two central agencies as its political tools.
