Tynsong to BJP: ‘Leave MDA if you are not comfortable’

SHILLONG, Oct 16: Deputy Chief Minister and National People’s Party (NPP) leader, Prestone Tynsong on Friday, said that the BJP should leave the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) if they are not  comfortable being in the coalition.

“You are part of the government and if you are not comfortable you are free to leave. But you are criticising and still working with the MDA,” Tynsong said.

It may be mentioned that the State BJP has demanded CBI probes into the alleged illegalities in the district councils as well as illegal transportation of coal.

The Deputy Chief Minister said that the the MDA has a coordination committee where all the alliance members are part of it and it is the only platform to discuss any grievances.

“But the BJP keeps going to the press. We have a proper platform, come to the table and bring all the papers and we will take action accordingly,” Tynsong said.

The Deputy Chief Minister also said that the coal being transported presently are those unclaimed ones with the due order of the Court.

He said that if there is no claimants to the seized coals then this has to go to the court who issues orders for auctioning.

On the auctioned coal the government will issue challans accordingly, Tynsong said.
