Shillong: The Meghalaya Congress termed the presence of State Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s filing of nominations in Varanasi as “a cat which has come out from the bag long ago”. Taking on the Conrad K Sangma for accompanying the Prime Minister on the day for his filing of nominations, senior Congress MLA Amapareen Lyngdoh told The Sentinel on Saturday that the close bond of the NPP and the BJP is nothing new. “The cat is out of the bag long time ago and it has been visible again,” stated Lyngdoh.
“We have no problem of our honourable Chief Minister sharing the dais with the Prime Minister. But it is the location and the timing”, stated Lyngdoh. She said that the State Chief Minister doesn’t understand the game of chess. “In politics, if somebody goes close to a king, there is every possible chances that he will be eaten. That is what Conrad is doing,” she said .
Calling the Chief Minister of indulging in ‘mindless following’, the three time Congress legislator outrightly stated “All politicians can have mentors; it’s more important to have a secular State.”
Asked on the BJP’s stand that the CAB should be reintroduced, the senior legislator said that the Congress is against it but the circumstances used on the NRC is worrisome.
