SHILLONG: BJP leader and Cabinet Minister in the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government AL Hek on Saturday said that he does not agree with the comment of Sanbor Shullai, who said that he will commit suicide if the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill is passed. According to Hek, in every person’s life there are ups and downs and one has to fight hardships confronting all, but to comment suicide is not acceptable.
“If there is any issue confronting our State and the indigenous people we will have to fight. We may be in any party. Our first priority is the State and our people,” Hek said.
He also said that as leaders one will have to fight for the State for the indigenous people.
The BJP leader however said that one cannot take any emotional decision on the Citizenship Bill even as he added that at the moment one really does not know how it will affect the people of the State.
“If affects the people of the State we will fight on and will not give an inch to anyone,” Hek added.
Hek also stated that by making such statements it was like setting a wrong example for the youths.
Meanwhile, BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli said that he can’t really comment whether Shullai said it or he was misquoted. Kohli also said that he was busy with the MP elections in Manipur and has not been able to speak to Shullai in what context he said those words if at all he really did.
