SHILLONG, FEB 8: Condemning the Charbatapara incident, former legislator from Phulbari Esmatur SG Mominin on Wednesday came down heavily against the NPP cadres led by the Shyamnagar MDC for exercising a ‘shameful act of barbarismâ€™.
“I condemn the brutal attack orchestrated by the NPP workers. I learned that the Shyamnagar MDC provoked this incident and is the proprietor of the crime. I request the ECI conduct a proper inquiry to reveal the truth and unearth what happened. This is a very shocking and serious matter. I hope the authorities will take appropriate action and ensure fair and free elections,â€ Mominin said in a statement.
The leader said that NPP is irked by the overwhelming support and unwavering confidence shown by the people towards Meghalaya TMC.
Narrating the night of daunting horror, the Meghalaya TMC leader said, “A huge procession of NPP workers abruptly started pelting stones, and bricks targeting the house where I was having a party meeting. Five of the party workers were injured, while one of them â€” Nozrul Hoque â€” was taken to Goalpara as referred by the Phulbari Hospital since he was gravely injured in the attack. The police witnessed how the NPP workers vandalised the premises and exhibited terror mongering.”
Slamming the NPP for peddling fake propaganda using media outlets, Mominin termed the baseless allegations ‘false and fabricatedâ€™.
“I got to know from news reports that TMC workers attacked NPP. The allegations that are labelled against TMC workers are false, baseless, and fabricated. Thousands of people who had witnessed the brutal behaviour of NPP workers,” he said.
The Meghalaya TMC candidate also thanked the TMC party workers and supporters for keeping their patience during the crucial hour of tribulation. He emphasized that these attacks will not be able to stop the people-centric vision of the Meghalaya TMC.
