Shullai said he had verbally complained to his national Vice President, M Chuba Ao. “Ao has been informed about all the activities of Mawrie and he has hinted us to give a complaint in writing and not verbally so that he can take up the matter with the central leadership of the party,” he stated.
Stating that the BJP president should be removed for the party to grow, Shullai said a joint statement of the members will soon been sent to the party supremo.

Shullai said that the statement made by the Chief Minister was “true and factual.”
