Meghalaya chief minister Conrad Sangma on Tuesday said that he will discuss with his National People’s Party (NPP) leaders to take a call on whether to snap ties with the BJP after the passage of the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 in the Lok Sabha. The Lok Sabha on Tuesday passed the Citizenship Bill that seeks to remove hurdles in eligible migrants from six minority groups from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan from getting Indian citizenship despite opposition by political parties including the Congress and Trinamool Congress. “Well it is very unfortunate that this CAB has been passed as this is something which we have opposed vehemently,” Sangma told journalists.
Sangma, who also heads the NPP, said that the Meghalaya Cabinet have passed a resolution opposing any kind of implementation of this Bill. 
Asked if the NPP will snap ties with the NDA, Sangma said: “We will see about that and will discuss with all party leaders as you are aware our party is present in almost five NE states. Therefore, I will need to call all the party leaders and take a call on this.”
