 SHILLONG: The UDP has ruled out possibility of quitting the MUA government on the issue of indictment of Urban Affairs Minister Ampareen Lyngdoh by CBI for her role in irregularities in appointment of assistant teachers in the government-run lower primary schools.

Talking to reporters here on Tuesday, UDP working president Paul Lyngdoh said, “If UDP pulls out from the Government, the entire case against Ampareen Lyngdoh would also become weak.”

The party had demanded removal of Lyngdoh from the ministry soon after the alleged manipulation in appointment of assistant teachers during her tenure as education minister came to light. The UDP sent a letter to the Chief Minister Dr Mukul Sangma.

The UDP leader said that the party was yet to receive any response from the Chief Minister in this regard.

“We will take this matter to its logical end but we can not reveal our strategy at this moment,” Lyngdoh added.

Though Ampareen Lyngdoh has clarified her stand on the entire scam, but the assertions of the Minister, it seems, has not gone well with the UDP leader.

“It is utter non-sense to term the CBI report as political agenda of some of her detractors as JD Sangma does not belong to any political party,” he said adding that the UDP would continue to be in the Government till it completes its full term.

It may be mentioned that the State Government has already constituted a high-level committee to probe the scam.
