Ampareen takes dig at VPP, says particular party abstained from all-party meet despite getting “proper platform”

Must read

Shillong, May 19: National People’s Party (NPP) MLA and Cabinet Minister Dr M Ampareen Lyngdoh has expressed a need to ensure that a robust roster is put into place to protect the interest of all citizens in the state.

Lyngdoh also said that the government is following the High Court direction and to go beyond that would not have been suitable.

Speaking to reporters, Lyngdoh said, “Members of a particular party abstained from attending the meeting even though the floor was open to queries and doubts. This is something we must set in order; we have to put things in the right perspective. If there are doubts or questions to be asked, we have provided the forum.”


The VPP has been very vocal about the non-availability of a “proper platform” to discuss on this issue, but on Friday they staged a walkout from the All-Party Meeting, stating it is pointless as they want to discuss on reservation policy and not on roster system.

Furthermore, she stated that the MDA-II government has invited all political parties to bring their agendas on roster to the recently constituted committee. “We will not close our doors to anyone with a hope that we, as the people who are at the helm of affairs, who are engineering important laws and policies of the state, do it in a befitting manner,” she said.
