SHILLONG, Oct 26: The Leader of Opposition in Meghalaya, Dr. Mukul Sangma has accused the BJP – led NDA government at the Centre of dismantling institution after institution.
Speaking during a protest staged by the party outside the CBI office here on Friday, Dr. Sangma said the Modi government has first dismantled the planning commission which used to act as a referee in the dispensation of resources and identifying potentialities of respective states.
“I have repeatedly shared this concern, Modi-led government has been depriving the states of the resources. When this type of manipulations are engaged by government of India towards small states in the NE including Meghalaya you can understand what can be the fallout and the fallout is it derails the momentum of growth and development,” he said.
Dr. Sangma alleged that number of projects sanctioned by the government of India and number of projects sanctioned by agencies under different ministries, the releasing of funds were asked to be stopped.
“Not only that, direction was also given to keep implementation of such projects in abeyance until further orders. This is how Modi government has been dismantling the institution after institution,” he said.
