FROM A REPORTER
SHILLONG, Jan 11: Newly elected UPD member to the Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) H S Shylla today slammed the statement made by HSPDP terming him as a threat to the indigenous Khasi community.
Speaking to The Sentinel over phone, Shylla said, “If the HSPDP is saying that I’m a threat to the indigenous Khasi community, I would like to say this clearly shows that there is danger for the Ardent Miller Basaiawmoit MLA form Nongkrem constituency in the 2018 assembly elections.”
He said at present the HSPDP is in a mode of panic and nervousness to single out his name as a threat to the Khasi community and shows that Basaiawmoit in 2018 has no hope to win the 2018 assembly elections
“It’s ironic that in a state of confusion the HSPDP is supporting the PDF in which they had all along oppose and been in the opposition,” he said.
According to him, the HSPDP leader was also relieved from his duty as the Chairman of Laitkor Pyllun.
“Ardent was appointed as chairman of Laitkor Pyllun for the welfare of the people. However, till today the account of Laitkor Pyllun remains at zero which means that he has not contributed a single penny in these 4 years as chairman.”
