BJP Appoints Alphons as Poll in-Charge for Meghalaya

BJP chief Amit Shah turns focus to poll-bound states of Meghalaya Mizoram & Tripura

"The BJP has set a target to win at least 120 seats in 2019 Assembly elections and we will surely achieve it".

The Indigenous Nationalist Party of Twipra (INPT) has made a decision to form electoral alliance with BJP to fight against the the CPM in 2018 Assembly polls.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah will inaugurate the second meeting of the party-led North-East Democratic Alliance or NEDA in New Delhi on Tuesday.

A host of senior BJP leaders including Union ministers Prakash Javadekar and Dharmendra Pradhan have also arrived to join Shah, who is on 110-day nationwide tour to strengthen the party.




When Paul Lyngdoh and MP Conrad Sangma, leaders from Meghalaya, which is one of the four states in the NE to go to elections, raised the question regarding the matter, senior leader and NDA convenor Himanta Biswa Sarma intervened and said local customs will be respected. Hitting out at the Naveen Patnaik government, Shah said the "state is plagued by rampant corruption", and people have been deprived of proper electricity and drinking water supply in the last 17 years of BJD rule. But, we are not getting the state's required support to take up the developmental projects.

"To bring in development in the state, Shah said Modi government handed over Rs 1 lakh 32,000 crores".

Another source from the INPT claimed that they have received proposal from Congress to form alliance, but the party rejected the proposal due to the party's bad situation and eyeing the growth of BJP.

BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra said the people of Odisha had now "developed doubts" in the Chief Minister over his "non-performance". Free cooking gas connections and bank accounts for all are some of the reformative steps taken by the Narendra Modi government, which the previous government never thought of. The BJP has just 10 MLAs in the assembly.
