Shillong, Oct 19: Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K. Sangma on Monday came down heavily on members of  the BJP Meghalaya State unit for time and again coming out in ‘press’ with statements and allegations.

He termed the conduct of such members as ‘irresponsible’, when the doors of his office was open for discussion.

Sangma said that in politics commitment is very important and the manner in which some of the BJP members are behaving in the State is uncalled for, while interacting with sections of media this afternoon.

“In politics, commitment given to a coalition partners is very important. We respect the sentiments of our coalition partners, so there is no question of thinking that we are in a better position or somebody else is not,” the Chief Minister said while clearly referring to the BJP State President Ernest Mawrie and others, who have been making statements on allegations of corruptions and misutilization of funds in the district councils.

Referring to such members who were not even members of the BJP party, when the coalition was formed in 2018, Sangma said, “The individuals who are talking now were most probably in other political parties or independents and they are not aware of the level of discussion that led to the formation of the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA), so I think they are not in the right position to make such statements.”

It is to be mentioned that one of the State BJP members had come out with statements that BJP was leading the formation of the MDA and the BJP was directly involved in projecting Conrad K. Sangma as the Chief Minister, while the fact remains that Conrad K. Sangma, who was not even elected as MLA then, was named as Chief Minister by late Dr. Donkupar Roy to lead the MDA coalition.

Sangma also said that as “Chairman” of the MDA it was his responsibility to take the coalition partners together and make himself available to hear their concerns and work on a possible solution.

“As a chairman of the MDA, I am very much willing to discuss all the matters, but one must act in a responsible manner,” he stressed.

He also justified the statement made by Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong that if BJP was not happy they can withdraw from the MDA.
