Senior advocate VGK Kynta has quit the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and apologised for a jibe he made at the regional parties’ expense when he joined the saffron outfit last year.
Kynta submitted his resignation letter to BJP state president Ernest Mawrie on April 20.
Addressing a press conference today, Kynta said he resigned as he had not been given any duty or work by the party, even during the campaign for the recent Assembly election.
Feeling humiliated by this, he said, “I had joined the BJP with a hope to do something for the state and the people. But with no duties at all, I feel that I should give up my association with this political party.”
Meanwhile, Kynta also apologised for his criticism of regional parties.
“I consider all the regional parties in the MDA (Meghalaya Democratic Alliance government) to be political parties swimming in small muddy ponds but, at the end of the day, we have to depend on the mother in the centre, which is run by the BJP,” Kynta had stated as he joined the saffron party in November.
Today he apologised, saying “I’m so sorry for saying things against the regional parties because all political parties are equally important and have their own ideologies for welfare of the state.”
