All India Congress Committee (AICC) General Secretary Luizinho Faleiro recently shared that North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA) partners have no moral right to remain with BJP. Faleirio questioned NEDA members like Meghalaya CM Conrad Sangma for being in the alliance with BJP, even after BJP president Amit Shah’s open support to the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill.
‘Isn’t it a deliberate knock on the face of Sangma? Does he not have any self respect? Is he then a part of the conspiracy to support the Bill clandestinely but opposes the bill only for political gains?’ he questioned.
Faleirio questioned the moral right of the other NEDA member parties who are still with NEDA, stating that NEDA members cannot fool the people of Northeast with their opportunist politics. ‘If they have any values left and if they are truly concerned about the cause of the people of Northeast, the NEDA members would have resigned the very day Amit Shah announced that the BJP will bring back the Bill, if voted to power in 2019,’ said Faleirio.
Faleiro, who is the Congress party in-charge of Meghalaya, Tripura, Arunachal Pradesh and Mizoram, stated that they, as per the directive of the party president Rahul Gandhi, took up the cause of stalling the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in the Rajya Sabha.
