Itagar, March 15: Visibly upset with the political turn of events in Manipur and Goa, newly appointed Aruchal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) President Takam Sanjoy alleged that the BJP is recreating the same political disorder as it did in Aruchal Pradesh, barely a few months ago. The new party chief was of the opinion that the BJP is making a mockery of the situation with its antics in Manipur and Goa. He highlighted that the people of the state had also given mandate to the Congress party under the leadership of former Chief Minister bam Tuki, but as the events unfolded, the party fell victim to the isolation created by those who were supposed to stand by during the test of time. Saying that the people are tired of “regular and artificial turncoats” in Aruchal politics, Sanjoy called on party workers to be careful and work diligently right from the grass-root level to make the party stronger for the next assembly elections. “If we stay united and work together, we will be ready to fight against the BJP in 2019”, he said He also clarified the misconception floating around that Aruchal would not receive funds if it did not have the same government as in the centre. He affirmed that there is no provision which says that funds would not flow to non-BJP states if the BJP is in the centre. “When Congress was in power, it did not stop the allocated funds for any state in the country. What is earmarked by the 14th Fince Commission will be received by the particular state. There is also no free money which can be thrown to Aruchal merely because it has a BJP Government”, Sanjoy added.
