Meghalaya polls BJP to release more lies in its'vision document, says Gaurav Gogoi

"Look at Prime Minister Narendra Modi's speech inside Parliament".

Alleging that the central government schemes were floated on the recommendations of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangha (RSS), Gogoi said, "Demonetization was not the idea of the Reserve Bank of India, it was done on the advice of the RSS".

Though there is not a single BJP legislator in the Meghalaya Assembly, Chandy said the BJP government at the Centre is using power and money to win the election, "which will have to be stopped".

"After they came to power in 2014, we saw many changes and heard many announcements, many of which like the observation of Good Governance Day on December 25 and Digital Day on Good Friday previous year, were against minorities", said the MLA who is seeking re-election.

"The harsh reality is that only 1.35 lakh jobs were added in 8 labour intensive sectors in 2015 as compared to the 9.3 lakh jobs that were created in 2011", he said.

Chandy, who is in the city to campaign for the party candidates, said on Tuesday that the Congress will retain power in Meghalaya thanks to the varied development initiatives carried out by Chief Minister Mukul Sangma. "They just want to tell us what to eat, which song to sing and how to display patriotism." he said.

Reacting to the Congress' jibe for calling BJP as anti-Christian, the BJP Spokesperson said, "I am charging the Congress party for trying to communalize this election and trying to force the churches into politics which is very unfortunate".

"The NPP is preparing for the backdoor entry of the saffron party in the North East and in Meghalaya. We have to realize that this election is about protecting the identity of the people of this state", he said.
