BJP support to NPP won’t work in state: Laskar

SHILLONG: The All India Congress Committee (minority department) observer for Meghalaya, Nagaland and Mizoram, Rejaul Karim Laskar has asserted that the BJP knew that its ideology would not find many takers in Meghalaya and hence it was trying to help parties like National People’s Party (NPP) in the run-up to next year’s Assembly elections.
Talking to newsmen here on Tuesday, Laskar said the BJP knows it cannot capture the state directly and so it is trying to help the NPP.
“They are day dreaming that they would form the government with the support of NPP, much like in Manipur, but here they will not be successful,” he told reporters. He said the alliance of BJP and NPP will not work in Meghalaya.
Reacting to a query, the AICC observer alleged that the ideology of the “communal” government at the Centre is against the minorities. “We cannot let their ideology succeed here,” he said.
According to Laskar, the minority department of the party will play an important role in making people aware about the “anti-minority policies” of BJP and Sangh Parivar and how minorities are facing harassment and atrocities in different parts of the country.
The party leader also claimed that the Congress would sail through the elections as the Congress-led government has brought a lot of development in the state.
