BJP to improve seats in Meghalaya: Himanta

Shillong, April 6: BJP leader and Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has said the party will improve its tally in the upcoming  Assembly elections in Meghalaya next year.

Sarma said the BJP will contest the Meghalaya elections as it has a good presence in the state.


“And we will try to improve our tally from the last time,” he said.

At present, BJP has only two MLAs in the 60-member House and is supporting the National People’s Party (NPP)-led Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government. 

War against drugs 

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said war against drugs is a coordinated effort and not an isolated war.

Sarma said under the umbrella of National Drugs Control, there is already a coordinated effort among all police forces in the North East region.

“Many times we nabbed some drug peddlers or seized huge quantities of drugs. Basically, sometimes those information comes from our sister states in the NE region. So war against drugs is a coordinated effort and it is not an isolated war,” he said.

Positions don’t matter

Sarma said his identity as a BJP karyakarta will remain.

Sarma said this in response to a query that his name has been projected as someone who is fit to step into Amit Shah’s shoes.

“We should not say all these things,” the Assam chief minister said as he stressed  that everyone is a simple karyakarta, a worker of the BJP.

One identity will remain with us that you are a karyakarta. The posts of chief minister, ministers -these will come and go but the identity as BJP karyakartas will remain with us,” Sarma said.
