Conrad is a spineless, gutless agent of the BJP: Marak
SHILLONG: Meghalaya Pradesh Youth Congress (MPYC) president, Richard Mrong Marak said the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill is highly divisive and discriminatory.
The MPYC president said that it will not allow BJP and their flunkies – the NPP and others – to overrun Meghalaya with foreigners.
Marak also sought to know from the National People’s Party (NPP), who claim to be a party representing the indigenous people of the State, as to why it is not protesting against the bill.
Marak alleged that NPP national president and Chief Minister of Meghalaya Conrad Sangma himself is a spineless, gutless agent of the BJP and in his greed for power will do anything for his masters.
“A puppet will do whatever his masters make him to do. To save face, he took a delegation to New Delhi to meet the PM regarding the bill, but laughably he was not entertained and they had to return without any photo opportunity of him handing over a piece of paper to the PM that he can share on social media,” Marak mocked at the Chief Minister.
According to Marak, Meghalaya needs a majboot sarkar (strong government) not a majboor sarkar (helpless government).
The MPYC president also said North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA) should be named as North-East Dangerous Alliance because the regional parties are being used by the BJP.
He alleged that The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill is being introduced for people being prosecuted in other countries, not for the citizens of India.
“The implications of the Citizenship Amendment Bill are wide-ranging and needs to be looked into not only from the viewpoint of Assam but through a wider lens,” Marak said.
Marak also said the Meghalaya Youth Congress will fight till its last breath against the ‘unconstitutional Citizenship (Amendment) Bill’.
