SHILLONG, April 11: The Chief Minister of Meghalaya, Dr. Mukul Sangma has expressed his amusement on how the UDP leaders can state that it the BJP is a ‘likeminded’ party.
Questioning this statement here on Tuesday, Dr. Sangma said, “How is the UDP and the BJP ‘likeminded’?
“Is UDP then subscribing to the agenda of the BJP?” Dr. Sangma asked while pointing out that one of the UDP leaders was referring to the BJP as a ‘likeminded’ party and at the same time criticizing the ban on cow slaughter.
“So how is BJP becoming a like-minded party to a regional party like UDP…that means they are also having the same agenda like BJP,” he said adding “They (UDP) should tell the people that they are having the same agenda like the BJP. Why are they lying to the people of the state?”
“It is very dangerous that UDP is likeminded party like the BJP that means they are camouflaging themselves as a regional party while their whole agenda is common to the agenda of the BJP.” Dr. Sangma said.
