The BJP Wednesday threatened to pull out of the National People’s Party-led authorities in Meghalaya over alleged corrupt practices in the implementation of the multi-crore particular assistant grant to the tribal autonomous councils right here. The occasion, which can also be half of the ruling Meghalaya Democratic Alliance, has additionally demanded a CBI inquiry into what it alleged is a rip-off in the implementation of the SAG funds.
“It is very unfortunate that the SAG funds meant for the development of areas under the two ADCs – Garo Hills Autonomous District Council (GHADC) and Jaintia Hills Autonomous District Council (JHADC) – have been misused by the ruling party i.e. the NPP. There is blatant corruption in the two ADCs,” BJP state president Ernest Mawrie mentioned. “We demand that the NPP executive committees in these two ADCs stop such activities else we may consider options of pulling out of the coalition,” he mentioned.
