AICC media coordinator Bobbeeta Sharma has alleged the chief minister Conrad K Sangma of protecting corrupt people.
Addressing media persons, Sharma said, “Unfortunately he (CM) has misused this opportunity of serving the people of Meghalaya and instead is neck deep in corruption along with the MDA members.”
She said, “It is also a matter of grave concern that the NPP has given ticket to an engineer who was responsible for the collapse of the assembly dome due to shoddy work. That shows that instead of punishing the culprit the MDA government is rewarding him. So it proves that they stand with corrupt people and are with corruption.”
“Why did Ampareen Lyngdoh join NPP? Because she is under the scanner of the CBI! So now it is common knowledge that the NPP led MDA Govt only protects tainted and corrupt people,” Sharma said.
The AICC leader further alleged that the NPP-led MDA government is taking help of BJP to only get protection from corruption.
“The BJP is helping in giving that protection. So BJP and NPP are hand in glove to give protection for corruption and looting the people of Meghalaya,” she said.
Stating that the people of Meghalaya will never accept the BJP because it is an outsider party, Sharma said, “NPP also should mind when they go to the BJP for protection against corruption they are actually also hand in glove with BJP which is an outsider party.”
She also slammed the CM for claiming that Meghalaya saw no development in last 45 years.
“We want to ask the CM – is he also saying that when his father late Purno Sangma was an MP in 1970’s and in 1980 when he was also Union Minister during Indira Gandhiji’s time as PM- did he not do anything for Meghalaya?”
She said, “We want to ask Mr Sangma that when his father late Purno Sangma was CM of Meghalaya between 1988- 1990 didn’t Meghalaya see any development? Then again during late Rajiv Gandhiji’s time and again during Late Narasimha Raoji ‘s time Late Purno Sangma again served as Union Minister, did he not bring any development projects to Meghalaya? What is the message the CM is trying to give? That his father was a failure? That as a Congressman late Purno Sangma did not contribute anything for the development of Meghalaya in all these years?”
“By saying that Meghalaya did not see any development in the last 45 years he must remember that he not only discredited the work done by his father as well as the very existence of Meghalaya that was given statehood by none other than the Congress party in 1972,” she said.
