In a stormy start to the Budget session, Opposition Congress on Friday boycotted Governor Tathagata Roy’s address to the Meghalaya assembly as a mark of protest over his recent tweets supporting for calls of boycotting of “everything Kashmiri” following the terror attack at Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir that killed 40 CRPF jawans.

Emerging out from an emergent Congress Legislature Party meeting, Leader of Opposition Dr. Mukul Sangma told reporters that his legislature party decided to boycott the Governor’s address saying that his tweet has created a rift in the nation. The former Chief Minister also questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s failure to sack Governor Roy’s following his “anti-national” messages.

“… he tweeted saying that all the Kashmiri goods should be boycotted, people should not visit Kashmir. Does it overwhelmed for the nation when a person holding a constitutional post not less than a Governor of a state can engage in this kind of message which is capable of creating a rift among the citizens of the nation,” Sangma said.

 “When there is a terrorist attack, the nation fight is against the terrorists not against the community or people, Will such people like the governor, if there is an event of such terrorist attack in the northeast states and tell the people to boycott northeast, boycott the goods of northeast. These are the kind of people who are dividing the nation and trying to give fodder to the anti-national forces,” Sangma added

The veteran Congress leader expressed concern over the lynching of Kashmiris across the country following the terror attack and Governor’s Roy tweet. “If a Governor who is holding a constitutional post is making such a narrative, what is going to happened to the nation if he say there is a bomb blast in northeast, boycott all the goods of the northeast , boycott all the northeast. What is he ultimately going to achieve. He is going to achieve the agenda of all anti-nationals who have the designed to disintegrate this nation,” Sangma stated.

Noting that Prime Minister should have pull out the governor following his “anti-national” message, the Leader of Opposition said,” he (Roy) should have been remove from the office in the best interest of the nation to send a strong message and to vindicate what he said to the nation.”
