BJP and NPP 'dog and tail', says Tharoor; Ram Madhav hits back

BJP and NPP 'dog and tail', says Tharoor; Ram Madhav hits back

"We demand an apology from Shashi Tharoor & Congress", ANI quoted Kohli as saying.

The Star Campaigner of Congress, Shashi Tharoor was in the state on Friday to hold an election campaign in Laitumkhrah and Police Bazar in Shillong.

Conrad Sangma's NPP is a part of the BJP-led North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA) and a partner in the BJP government in neighbouring Manipur, but has no pre-poll alliance with the saffron party in Meghalaya.

BJP National General Secretary Ram Madhav on Saturday slammed Congress leader Shashi Tharoor for comparing Meghalaya's regional National People's Party (NPP) with the wagging tail of a dog - the BJP - and said the leader was at "his indecent best" and that it is "an insult to the people of Meghalaya".




National People's Party (NPP) president, Conrad K Sangma on Friday campaigned at Siju - Rongara constituency, along the global border with Bangladesh in Meghalaya. "Let us pledge that together, we will be able to realise the dreams of our late leader Purno Sangma", Conrad said.

In a statement, Tharoor said, "NPP is trying to say they are independent and are contesting election by themselves and everywhere but Meghalaya, they are allied to BJP and attaching itself as a tail that is wagging whenever the dog barks". The Congress leader also accused the BJP of "promoting a narrow-minded idea of India" which he is exclusively based on Hindutva. "In Meghalaya they come here and say that you can eat whatever you like and in the rest of India they beat and even kill people on suspicious of having eaten beef", he said.

"What makes the people here suddenly believe that somehow in Meghalaya they will deliver when they have not done anywhere else?" He said that Mr Thomas, who has an experience as member of the Rajya Sabha will be an added bonus for the electorates of North Tura constituency and push the agenda of the party and ensure that development reaches nook and conner of the constituency.

"The social audit law is a law and it exists". The results will be declared on March 3.
