Chief Minister Conrad Sangma has downplayed Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s big corruption charge against the NPP-led MDA government stating such statements are made everywhere by the BJP during elections.
“BJP are making these statements for election purposes. They were part of this government and have worked with us,” Sangma told reporters today. He said the accusations were also made in West Bengal, Tenlangana, Delhi and now Meghalaya, which is not new.
Shah’s remark in Tura has become the biggest talking point in the State with the opposition TMC taking the subject to every election platform.
Asked on the Congress’s 10 alleged scams in a ‘chargesheet’ against the government, the chief minister said inquiry into the Saubhagya scheme has been done and that the report was place in public domain. He said similarly the report of the inquiry into the rice scam was submitted even though it was “just an allegation.”
When a reporter mentioned that there were no reports available in public domain, Sangma chose to disagree stating, “They have been made public or at least a summary of the reports have been given to everybody.”
On Covid-19 expenditure, Sangma said the people are free to file an RTI as every expenditure is in order.
