NPP’s arrogance will serve them poorly: BJP


The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday said the arrogance of the National People’s Party (NPP) will serve them poorly in the upcoming elections after Chief Minister Conrad Sangma said that the saffron brigade will not improve on its tally of two seats from 2018 at the upcoming election.
The saffron party, which has been its ally over the past five years in the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance coalition, said that Sangma, who is also the national president of NPP, should try and save his own seat of South Tura instead of trying to estimate the results of the BJP.
The BJP has fielded a former militant leader-turned politician Bernard Marak against Sangma.
“The NPP is very popular among the people of Meghalaya for setting new standards of corruption in the state. Instead of building roads to villages, the NPP leaders have managed to build driveways to their homes. Instead of lighting up the streets, the NPP leaders have managed to hang chandeliers in their many houses. Instead of building the state, they have managed to build up their assets,” the party said.
Acknowledging that Chief Minister Sangma is right in saying that the people should not waste their vote, the BJP said, “The winds are indeed blowing. The people have decided to choose a BJP-led government that delivers on promises, and the people have decided to not elect leaders who will only return in five years with new tricks to fool the people.”
