BJP slams opposition for spreading rumours

DIMAPUR, JUN 20 (NPN) | Publish Date: 6/20/2019 11:03:41 AM IST

Reacting to reports in the social media about re-alignment of political coalition in the state, the state BJP has refuted the reports and instead, accusing its political adversaries of vainly trying to destabilise the ruling PDA coalition (NDPP-BJP-JDU and Independent) by spreading rumours on the “reshuffle of the PDA government.” 

State BJP spokesperson Kuputo Shohe in a statement maintained that the PDA coalition was on solid foundation against “intrusion” , much to the disappointment of the rivals.

The BJP said the recent victory of the party and its alliance partners in the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls, had re-ignited excitement of its rivals who attempted “ a possible entry into the government” but were disappointed since such backdoor entry utterly failed.

After the attempt to dislodge the PDA coalition failed, BJP said the opposition resorted to spreading “vicious rumours and cheap propaganda” in the social media. Instead, said BJP, such attempts to demean the PDA were futile and made the bond among PDA partners stronger than ever.

Further, BJP said the recent directive issued from the NPF president to the leader of the NPF legislature to “explore possibilities to form government” only exposed the desperation of the opposition NPF. 

Further BJP expressed surprise over the cheap propaganda of the opposition and regretted that the oldest regional party could stoop so low out of desperation.

The BJP also informed that currently state chief minister Neiphiu Rio, Dy chief minister Y.Patton, state BJP president and minister Higher & Technical Education, Temjen Imna Along, minister of Urban Development & Municipal Affairs, Metsubo Jamir and host of  ministers and advisers were in Delhi to congratulate BJP leaders for the comprehensive victory and also to apprise the Centre  of the issues concerning the state.

The state BJP therefore, reminded the opposition rivals to fulfil their duty as a constructive opposition rather than indulging in cheap propaganda.

It may be recalled that the NPF president Dr. Shürhozelie Liezietsu, during the party’s Central Executive Council (CEC) emergency meeting held on June 12, unplugged his authority over the NPF Legislature Party (NPF-LP) by giving it a free hand to decide on how to bring about a “change in the government” and also assured the party of his full support.  

Dr. Shürhozelie admitted that being in the opposition wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea and so left it to his party legislators to decide on being in a government but at the same time, prove  their integrity, firmness and commitment towards their people.

Toning down his earlier vow to not have any truck with either BJP or NDPP, the NPF party president admitted the despite efforts of the party legislature to form a secular government, the process was not attainable but assured of his party’s support to  any arrangement that did not compromise on the regional identity of the NPF.
