BJP Candidate from South Shillong, Sanbor Shullai slammed his colleague, the BJP candidate from Pynthorumkhrah AL Hek for projecting himself as the next Chief Minister if the BJP is elected to power after the 2023 Assembly Election.
“He cannot say that…that is very wrong, he cannot say he is the Chief Minister or I will be the Chief Minister. That is very wrong”, said Shullai while speaking to reporters after the filing of his nomination papers in which Union Minister Jitendra Singh accompanied him on Monday at the Office of the Deputy Commissioner, East Khasi Hills.
“This (BJP) is a national party, everything is being decided by the Party high command from Delhi”, added Shullai.
