Shillong, Sep 4 Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Meghalaya unit in-charge M Chuba Aao has said that the party will soon decide whether to continue its support to the National People’s Party (NPP)-led MDA government in the state.
The BJP’s statement came amid allegations of corruption against the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government in the state led by Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma.
BJP leader M Chuba Aao said discussions are being held within the party and a final decision on whether to come out of the ruling alliance will be taken within a month.
The BJP has two MLAs in Meghalaya and is an ally of the National People’s Party-led coalition government in the state.
“We will decide within a month whether we will continue or withdraw support,” M Chuba Aao told reporters after a party meeting here on Saturday evening. Discussions are going on at various levels. We will discuss this again with our national president JP Nadda.
The ruling Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) has a total of 48 MLAs, including 23 from the NPP, in the 60-member state assembly.
While the opposition Trinamool Congress has 12 MLAs.
Referring to several allegations of corruption against the NPP-led government, the BJP leader said the party leadership has received several complaints in this regard.
“Our workers have been instructed to collect evidence. If need be, central agencies will investigate the allegations.
