Shullai slammed NPP for acting as a silent spectator to BJP's divisive agenda and vile politics. “Trinamool Congress is the only party that is exposing the truth about BJP: it is anti-Christian. Since 2014, the attack on Christian communities has skyrocketed. So, if NPP was really people-centric, they would not have been allies with the BJP. With a united cadre, Meghalaya TMC will continue to work earnestly to fulfil its promises keeping the interests of the people as its topmost priority,” Shulai said.
Targeting NPP for its baseless propaganda, the Meghalaya TMC leader added, “The leaders are working overtime to hide the fact that NPP and BJP together formed the MDA government that has taken the state back by years. NPP is simply the B team of the BJP.”
Meanwhile, Congress candidate from Mawlai Constituency, Marbud Dkhar also filed his nomination papers on February 3.
Dkhar will contest against former MLA and UDP Candidate PT Sawkmie and against the sitting MDC of NPP Teibor Pathaw.
