Itagar, Feb 23: Without condoning the protocol lapse on the part of organizing committee of the Statehood Day celebration, the state BJP has appealed the state unit of Indian tiol Congress (INC) not to trivialize a serious issue into a political slug fest.
“What has happened with former Chief Minister bam Tuki is very unfortute and such thing should not have happened with any public figure from any walk of life,” said BJP state general secretary Jarpum Gamlin while adding that on such serious lapse, pointing fingers and playing blame game won’t serve any purpose.
Terming it as a systemic failure to adhere to standard operating procedures, Gamlin accepted that the episode was an aberration. “Given our party’s ideology, the elders in society are always respected and given due position and importance. So the question of insulting someone of Tuki’s stature is absolutely out of question. We reject and condemn any such claim made by Congress workers,” said Gamlin. “Social etiquette is the foundation of a healthy society therefore BJP as a disciplined political party shall not brook any further failure of protocol on such important occasions,” Gamlin assured.
