Leader of Opposition, Dr Mukul Sangma fired a fresh salvo on the allies of the NPP led MDA coalition government for being silent on the illegalities which are taking place in the State.
“The political parties who are part of the ruling coalition are not speaking out since they are benefitting from it. It is only the people of the State who are losing because of the illegal activities which are taking place during the present regime,” Sangma told reporters.
Stating that the opposition are raising these illegalities on behalf of the people, he said that the State Government remains on a denial mode whatever they have raised, whether inside the Assembly or outside.
Meanwhile, Dr Sangma also slammed the state government for not implementing the Meghalaya Residents Safety and Security Act when the State is awaiting a nod from the Union Government for introduction of Inner Line Permit.
Stating that the previous Congress led Government has not implemented the Eastern Bengal Frontier Regulation, 1873, the Leader of Opposition also said that they had come up with a state law like MRSSA to deal with the problem of influx and illegal immigration.
“The assurance from the Chief Minister in the session last year was that he will ensure the implementation of ILP in the state and one year has passed and we had to remind during the last Assembly session for their non-seriousness,” Dr Mukul stated.
Replying to a question if the opposition MLAs would visit New Delhi to pressurise the Union Government to implement ILP in the state, Sangma said that the members of the House have already given their mandate to the ILP through the resolution which was unanimously passed by the Assembly to urge the Government to implement Inner Line Permit.
