NPP’s win means more Christian representation in Delhi: BJP

SHILLONG, April 16: The State BJP on Tuesday pitched for the victory of Ampareen Lyngdoh and Agatha Sangma, asserting that their win would ensure greater Christian representation in the BJP-led Union government.
“Both of them, if elected, can raise issues related to the Christian community, and being part of the government, will have a better say. So the anti-Christian narrative by the opposition parties will be defeated if both of them are elected from Meghalaya,” BJP’s South Shillong MLA, Sanbor Shullai said.
The BJP MLA stated that MPs from another party cannot do much in Delhi, considering that their voice will not be heard in a House that will hardly have any opposition left.
Quoting poll analysis, he said the NDA will cross the 400-seat mark and sending MPs from Congress or regional parties will lead to a loss of five years for the people of the state.
Shullai has cautioned the public, especially the educated youth and the literate section of society, that various political parties are laying the foundation of a culture of lawlessness in Meghalaya.
“Meghalaya must move forward and concentrate on developmental issues; we cannot continue to bring up issues that will divide our society. If the educated voters desire a peaceful Shillong, they must make their voice heard on April 19,” he said.
