Shillong, Dec 22: The state BJP on Thursday slammed the Trinamool Congress (TMC) for their false promises and their track record on alleged corruption, hooliganism, violence-based politics, appeasement, and on turning independent states into dole dependent societies.
BJP spokesperson M. Kharkrang said that the TMC in Meghalaya is like the East India Company which has come into the state with a mindset to plunder its peace and harmony, and to create in Meghalaya another mishap like West Bengal.
He said that the TMC is a regional party of West Bengal with no understanding of Meghalaya and its people. He argued that while the TMC spoke about wanting sons of the soil to run the state, they would continue to run a proxy government from West Bengal. This, he said, is already evident from the promises that they are making. He said they wanted to replicate their failed West Bengal model of mis-governance in Meghalaya as well.
Questioning the real intent of the recently announced ‘We Card’, he said that this failed scheme was already on-going in West Bengal under the aegis of ‘Lakshmir Bhandar’. The scheme in WB is marked with favouritism in the selection of beneficiaries.
Kharkrang said that after having fed on the development funds and opportunities of West Bengal, the TMC now wants to deprive Meghalaya too.
Further, he said the politics in Meghalaya is non-violent and the political discourse is largely decent. However, TMC is known for its politics of revenge and violence. The nation watched in horror as TMC goons descended upon their political rivals with vengeance after the last assembly elections in WB. Political murders are an everyday news in West Bengal, he claimed.
