NPP might support UCC like they supported CAB, Ardent cautions

By Our Reporter

SHILLONG, March 23: The VPP on Saturday said that the decision of the BJP to support the NPP in the Shillong and Tura Parliamentary seats only proves the close bond between the two parties.
“The BJP and the NPP are ‘Bhai Bhai’. We should not forget that the NPP had backed the BJP on the Citizenship Amendment Bill. Now, the NPP will again support the BJP to implement the Uniform Civil Code soon. It will not be wrong to say that the NPP is the face of the BJP in Meghalaya,” VPP president, Ardent Miller Basaiawmoit stated.
He said that people should not fall for this ploy of the BJP which is only trying to strengthen its position in the state riding on the shoulders of the NPP.
According to him, the BJP has not put up any candidate since it understands well that it will not win in Meghalaya.
Urging people to repose their faith on the VPP which represent the sentiments of the people, he said, “We have seen how the regional parties are leading in many states. We need to replicate this even in Meghalaya.”
Basaiawmoit said that the failure of the Congress has allowed the BJP to rule for the past ten years.
“We have given the Congress MP 15 years to represent the Shillong Parliamentary seat. I would appeal the people to elect the VPP candidate as their MP this time,” the VPP president said.
He also said that the party has decided that only a few party leaders will accompany the candidate, Ricky AJ Syngkon, during the filing of nominations on Tuesday. “We do not want to create any inconvenience for the public by taking a huge crowd during the filing of nominations,” Basaiawmoit said.
The party also lashed out at the NPP for denying the fact that the Congress leadership (Vincent Pala) has turned his party into the B team of the NPP and C team of the BJP.
“Those who have termed the VPP’s statement as a figment of imagination are either living in denial mode or are too simple to understand politics,” VPP spokesperson Batskhem Myrboh said.
He said, “It was the Congress state chief who made sure that Congress leaders became political refugees in Meghalaya and were left with no other choice but to migrate to other parties for survival.”
The VPP had, earlier, claimed that the NPP in Meghalaya could have survived and succeeded only if the Congress was weakened and this objective was successfully met by the treacherous actions of the sitting Lok Sabha member and Congress chief, Vincent H Pala.
