 The United Democratic Party (UDP), Meghalaya’s main regional political party, Wednesday announced that it has snapped ties with the BJP-led North East Democratic Alliance over the controversial Citizenship Bill.

The announcement came days after BJP President Amit Shah said that his party will make the Bill part of the party manifesto for the coming Lok Sabha elections and pass it if it returns to power. 

“We have snapped ties with the BJP-led NEDA over the controversial Bill, besides the insensitivity of the BJP leadership towards indigenous Meghalayans in particular and in the Northeast as a whole,” UDP vice president Allantry Franklin Dkhar told the media here.

“In fact, our the decision was taken a couple of days after 11 regional political parties from across the NE states met in Guwahati on January 29 which unanimously agreed to oppose the Bill,” Dkhar added. 

The UDP, which has nine members, including two associate members in the 60-member state Assembly, is supporting the NPP)-led MDA government.
