Meghalaya: TMC Criticises Assam CM For Giving Clean Chit To Police

Guwahati: The national spokesperson for the Trinamool Congress Saket Gokhale on December 26 criticised Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma for giving a clean chit to police on the Mukroh Firing incident.

In relation to the Mukroh fire incident, he further charged that the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) had submitted to Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.

This development follows the Assam Chief Minister’s previous assertion that the shooting in Mukroh was an act of self-defense to defend and protect government property.

”We condemn the insensitive and pre-emptive statement of Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma on the Mukroh murder where he seems to have given a clean chit to his police while the matter is still under investigation. This only shows that the investigation is a sham and the final results are pre-determined by the Assam CM,” he said in an official statement.

The spokesperson for the Trinamool Congress also condemned the MDA Government’s and Meghalayan Chief Minister Conrad Sangma’s submission to their distant overlords in Delhi and Assam.

Gokhale also said that Sarma’s statement was made when an investigation was still being conducted and the Trinamool Congress’s complaint to the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) was still pending.

”After brutally killing 5 UNARMED people of Meghalaya in unprovoked firing, this statement by the Assam CM is an act of rubbing salt on wounds,” he added.

The MDA government prevented the Meghalaya Police from apprehending the Assam Police officers guilty for this homicide despite the fact that a police report was filed in Meghalaya on the incident. This was another goal of his.

”The MDA Govt made a show of “we’re doing something” to pacify the people of Meghalaya but took zero concrete action,” he said.

The NPP and BJP are allies. It is a well-known fact that Assam BJP CM Himanta Biswa Sarma not only controls the Meghalaya MDA Govt by remote control but is also one of the main people responsible for ensuring adequate election funding for the NPP, he said.

”As the Meghalaya Assembly Elections approach, the priority of the NPP and CM Conrad Sangma is to ensure that Himanta Biswa Sarma and the BJP are kept happy rather than ensuring justice for the victims of the Mukroh murder,” he added.

This is also the reason why CM Conrad Sangma chose to appeal for Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s intervention in the matter rather than empower the Meghalaya Police to take action, he said.
