Asked if the state BJP has given the proof to its central leadership on the allegation made, he said, “Whatever paper was required we have given all and coal issue is in front of everyone’s eye, District council matters are based on RTI reports and all was handed over to our National leaders in Delhi, not only JP Nadda whoever we are meeting we are providing them proofs of RTI copies annexure by annexure.”

The State BJP in December 2020 passed a resolution on “zero tolerance on corruption”, saying “many people in the rural areas as well as in the urban areas were victims of bad governance in the State.”
The saffron party, which is supporting the NPP-led Meghalaya Democratic Alliance Government while raising issues relating to corruption in governance, adopted the resolution at a meeting presided over by state BJP president, Ernest Mawrie.
Stating that Meghalaya BJP president has briefed National BJP chief in details, Chakraborty said, “We have touched the organisational report so he has heard and was very happy that Meghalaya also is improving and he said you all should work hard so that lotus blooms in Meghalaya.”
