SHILLONG, Feb 24 : BJP leader and Minister of State for Home, Kiren Rijiju today said that the saffron party was the only answer to the problems faced by the people of the North-east.

Addressing media persons at the party office in Shillong, Rijiju said that the BJP wants to take the North-eastern region along and ensure that it does not lag behind.

Taking a dig at the Congress, the BJP leader said that it pains him to see the party, which is currently ruling Meghalaya, hiding behind its failures by spreading cards against the saffron party.

“The Congress is painting the BJP as a commul and anti-Christian party,” Rijiju said. He said that such statements cannot be tolerated and there is no question of imposition by the BJP in the are of culture of the people of Meghalaya.

“The allegation of imposition is ucceptable. It is spread by the Congress and no one will believe it,” Rijiju said.

He also said that it was only the BJP who can take care of the concerns of Meghalaya and the North-east.

He also alleged that the Congress is also trying to project BJP as a Hindu force adding that religion and politics are two different things.

“We have to understand that the tive of Meghalaya will look after the affairs of the State. The MLAs, Ministers and Chief Minister will be people from the State. Therefore, the question of imposition is totally baseless and totally ucceptable,” Union Minister of State for Home Affairs said.
