Senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh has termed the National People’s Party (NPP), United Democratic Party (UDP) and the All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) as puppets of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
He said the “puppet master” sits in Delhi and controls the political parties in different states of the county.
“NPP is BJP’s A-team, UDP is BJP’s B-team and TMC or JMP is BJP’s C-team here and the Congress is fighting a three-party or four-party alliance led by the BJP,” Ramesh said after releasing the party manifesto here today.
Rechristening the TMC as ‘JMP’ which stands for “Judas Mukul Party’, Ramesh said there is a new, third puppet that has come into Meghalaya politics TMC or JMP (Judas Mukul Party).
Ramesh said Meghalaya means the abode of the clouds but these clouds have taken on a different meaning. “Today, these clouds are of corruption, unemployment, power cuts, damage to the independent identity of people of Meghalaya and the clouds of political puppetry,” he said.
Ramesh said all the parties are part and parcel of the same package. “The Congress is fighting the cloud of corruption, the cloud of unemployment, the cloud of destruction of Meghalaya’s identity and finally the cloud of unholy alliance – BJP, NPP, UDP, TMC – who are all claiming to fight independently now but mark my words at the first opportunity they will jump into bed together,” he added.
