TMC leader challenges Tynsong to debate on ‘irregularities’

SHILLONG, Sep 22: Trinamool Congress (TMC) national spokesperson Saket Gokhale on Thursday challenged Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong to a debate on “alleged irregularities” in implementation of the Shillong Smart City project, collapse of the Assembly dome and anomalies in contract awarding process and misgovernance.
In a letter addressed to Tynsong, the TMC leader said: “Sir, yesterday you conducted a press conference with several media and press outlets in Meghalaya. During this press conference, you were questioned about the facts of several irregularities that I, on behalf of the TMC, have raised over the last 2 months especially pertaining to the matter of Shillong Smart City Ltd. and the collapse of the Meghalaya Assembly Dome and the anomalies in the contract process.”
“In response, you failed to provide any answer to the allegations and instead referred to me and said that “If he is so concerned, let him come to Shillong and find out,” Gokhale wrote, adding, “I have been in Shillong constantly over the last 2 months and have seen first-hand the irregularities in the administration about the issues I have raised.”
He stated that he will be in Shillong in a week’s time and invited Tynsong for a discussion/debate in the presence of the media in Shillong on the issues of misgovernance. “Any date in the first week of October at your convenience is suitable for me. I eagerly hope you will accept my offer and await your response,” the TMC leader wrote.
When contacted, the deputy CM said: “Let him come.” He refused to speak any further.
