Shillong, Jan 10: The Politician – militant nexus in Meghalaya is nothing new to most but it has never been officially confirmed. There have been numerous attempts in the past by police department to ascertain these nexuses, but such finding were either eschewed or remained inconclusive. However, for the very first time a militant outfit has come out in open to declare its connections with a politician, who is none other than the Chief Minister Dr Mukul Sangma himself.
Ironically, Dr Sangma has always maintained that there is indeed a Politician – militant nexus, especially in Garo Hills, and claimed to have proof in this regard on many occasions. This revelation could put the CM in a tight spot and may give an upper hand to his rivals, who otherwise has a very domineering attitude and way of life.
In an open letter to Dr Sangma dated on December 28, 2013, released to the media on Friday, the ANVC(B) has threatened to return to the jungle and promised to bring down Dr Sangma and his House as he did not keep his promise to the outfit in return for their alleged services to keep him at the helm of affairs.
