MDA not serious about bill: Sawkmie
SHILLONG: Congress and Mawlai MLA PT Sawkmie on Sunday asserted the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) has not taken up the issue of Citizenship (Amendment) Bill (CAB) seriously.
In a statement issued here, he said the MDA should have followed in the footsteps of Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) which has severed ties with the BJP. The MDA has two BJP MLAs in the government.
He said, “I thought in the meeting with the Union Home Minister in New Delhi, the MDA would hand over the letter of withdrawal of support to the BJP at the Centre.”
According to him, the MDA should also quit the North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA) floated by the BJP.
With the Centre eager to go ahead with implementation of the CAB despite voices of dissent from the North East, Sawkmie recalled that the MDA had passed the resolution in the cabinet to oppose the bill.
