Arunachal Pradesh BJP president Tapir Gao takes a jibe at Congress over cash seizure
BORDUMSA: “For fear of losing popular support of the people across the State, the Congress has been left with the only option to explore all means to tarnish the image of the BJP in the run-up of the simultaneous election”, stated Arunachal Pradesh BJP president Tapir Gao. This statement comes after Rs 1.8 crore was confiscated on Tuesday from a car which was part of the Chief Minister’s convoy in Pasighat.
Gao who is also the candidate for the Eastern parliamentary seat of the State admitted that the amount recovered from a private car belonged to a BJP MLA. “But the money can be acounted for as personal property and this could be proved during the investigation”, Gao said.
Refuting the validity of the video that went viral on various social media platforms, Gao further clarified that the seized amount, as alleged the rival Congress, neither belonged to him nor Pema Khandu or Chowna Mein. Gao while taking a dig at the Congress said, “I am baffled at the fact that the Congress has been left with the only option of damaging the reputation of the BJP.”
“The recent PRC issue at Lekang circle in Namsai district and the disaster that followed in the State capital bears the testimony to the fact that Congress cannot play fair politics and and rather play with the sentiments and emotion of the people of the State just before the election”, he said.
