HNLC claim responsibility for the IED blast at them metor

Shillong, Apr 24: Lazarus Sangma, a Chokpot legislator has affirmed that none of the legislator of AITC will be defecting to NPP’s camp at present or in future and has call it a media bluff while reacting to the claims of NPP that several AITC legislators would be joining the NPP camp before election, sources reported on Sunday.

“It is an outrageous claim,” said Sangma reacting to NPP claims on AITC legislators’ defection.

“Although, we know that NPP leaders have been making rounds not only to AITC legislators but to all the camps of different parties to poach the legislators but you can’t poach legislators with principles,” he claimed.

“None of the AITC legislators as of now or in future would be joining NPP,” he sternly announced adding that, “NPP has a weak leadership “.

He informed that Shri Conrad K Sangma, instead of taking responsibilities and accountabilities of his action, he has always took a crooked road of blaming others for his own action, referring to the border dispute and agreement signed by present Chief Minister.

Sangma said that present CM’s leadership is very weak and no AITC legislator from Meghalaya would like to be a part in that fold in comparison to Dr. Mukul Sangma’s able leadership team.

He said that the Chief Minister has done more harm than benefit to the state of Meghalaya especially Garo Hills in reference to all the sectors with education having suffered more than anything being the NPP’s first priority.

Sangma also said that all the claims made by NPP is just the media bluff be it AITC legislators joining NPP or border dispute or education as first priority or fulfilling the dream of Late Purno Agitok Sangma among others.

“Had NPP kept its promises in four years nullifying the drama it hosts, they don’t need to omit the bluff in the media to fool the people of Meghalaya,” Sangma informed.

He said that NPP should be careful while making such tall claims and he added that, “CM himself, may not win in his own constituency in coming election as people of South Tura has already lost faith in his policies and actions.”

Just a few days back, NPP camp claimed that AITC legislators would be joining the NPP fold and Sangma has reacted furiously on the statement made.
