 SHILLONG: The ANVC (B) on Sunday justified the attack on MPCC working president Deborah Marak saying that for free and fair election, aspirants must first stop being corrupt.

“We have issued warnings to politicians not to lure public through cash and false promises, yet we find some crossing those boundaries to buy votes”, ANVC (B) chairman Rimpu Marak said in a statement.

Underestimating ANVC (B) will prove to be fatal and destructive to the politicians as well as to their workers, he said.

“Some politicians just cannot interpret the language we speak; sometimes bullets work better,” he added.

The rebel leader further urged the politicians to pay heed to the given warnings and show some positive initiative before campaigning.

“It is time to show results. We are also interested to know the implementation of the Rs 5 crore area development scheme of each MLA and we want to make sure public money is not being used for political campaigns,” Rimpu added.

Lapang denounces attack

MPCC president DD Lapang on Sunday strongly condemned the unprovoked dastardly attack by militants, heavily armed with sophisticated weapons, on Congress working president Deborah Marak.

Lapang termed it as an attack on the democratic right of the people of this free nation to organize public activities and functions.

Demanding a high-level enquiry into the incident, the MPCC president said the truth should be found out and the perpetrators of this crime brought to book.
