Shillong: The spat of the mighty began in the fray for the Shella by poll. This is seen in the exchange between the BJP and PDF leaders, Sanbor Shullai and Hamlet Dohling, both partners in the MDA government.
Eying for the Shella Seat, the BJP leader use to the best advantage the party’s tallest stature in the federal government. Responding to the criticism by PDF leader Hamlet Dohling, Shullai defends his words “I am speaking of the principle in which the BJP stands. Under the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the BJP is a corruption-free party. This is the Party’s manifesto”.
He further said, “I did not say the state is of the BJP neither the PDF’s. Why is Hamlet trembling? I have the right as the MLA of the BJP to meet the leaders and ministers of the party to brief about the grievances of the people of the constituency and of the state.”
Shullai said that why should anyone fear if the schemes implementations is followed up! He challenged his opponent to properly and diligently implement the schemes and if need be, he is always willing to help. The first priority in giving opportunity should be to people of the state not outsiders he added.
