Youth Congress terms NPP as ‘RSS agent’

HP NEWS SERVICE
Shillong, Jan 13: The Meghalaya Pradesh Youth Congress (MPYC) has dubbed the National People’s Party (NPP) led by Chief Minister Conrad Sangma as “an agent of the RSS.”
MPYC president Richard Mrong Marak today alleged that the NPP was created to promote the agenda of the RSS.
“The MDA government is so confused and they don’t know what they are doing and the NPP was created to promote the RSS agenda,” he said, adding, “It should stop fooling the people and openly join the BJP because the NPP is BJP.”
Marak said that the party alone can never claim to represent the state and the indigenous tribals of the North East.
“The fact that lone MP of NPP Agatha Sangma voted in favour of the Citizenship Amendment Act 2019, the NPP can never claim to represent the people of the North East as they represent their family and Conrad represents himself, and only himself,” Marak told Highland Post on Monday.
Informing that the Congress party will carry out various protests against the CAA and several issues in the coming days, Marak also said that the Congress party will also hold protest programmes against the CAA on January 21 on the occasion of Meghalaya day.
He said that the youth Congress will also join agitations that will be carried out by various NGOs in the state.
“We want to unite the people because the CAA is a threat to the indigenous people of the Northeast,” he said adding that the Congress demanded a fresh mandate and will not allow the divide and rule tactic of the BJP.
He slammed the government for the indiscriminate power cuts and said that this has adversely affected the rural areas of Garo Hills.
Marak further said that till date the NPP led government has failed to respond to the manipulation of the terms and conditions in the bidding documents of the Saubhagya scheme which is 100 per cent rural electrification scheme.
