Meghalaya BJP remains non-committal on CAA implementaion

SHILLONG: Meghalaya State BJP remains non-committal on their stand as far as implementing Citizenship Amendment Act is concerned while the Central party leaders and the newly-elected state president of the party, Ernest Mawrie refused to come clear on their stand as far as the contentious Act is concerned.

Speaking to media persons after being elected as the State president of the party, Ernest Mawrie refused to give any clear answer whether he supported CAA or not and instead maintained that the matter was pending in the Court and hence he couldn’t comment anything on the matter.

“ We cannot comment anything and I have to discuss the matter with the state leaders,” he said.

Stating that the passing of the CAA was promised in the manifesto of the party, he, however, added that the party would welcome the implementation of Inner Line Permit in Meghalaya as it is the demand of the people of the state.

When similar question was asked about the stand of the BJP as far as fully exempting Meghalaya from the CAA, BJP National Secretary, Sunil Deodar said that he was not eligible to answer the question as he was not the in charge of Meghalaya

“ I am here only to conduct elections,” he said.

He, however, assured that the party would always be the mediator to inform the central party and Government about the demands and aspirations of the people  of the state.

“ As we are ruling and if there is any question or resentment among the people of the state, State BJP is the best mediator between the Central Government and the people of the state and I am sure our leaders here will become good mediators in bringing all NGOs and their sentiments to reach the Prime Minister,” he said.
