Cong leadership did not want us to contest polls on party ticket: Ampareen

Shillong,April 28: Suspended Congress MLA Ampareen Lyngdoh said the Congress leadership did not want them to contest polls on Congress ticket and hence suspension was imposed for three years.

Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Ampareen said though they were suspended since January, it was suprising to know from media reports on Thursday that it was for three years.

According to Ampareen, the Congress has chased the five legislators away and added that they have not done anything wrong by extending support to the MDA.

The legislators are yet to receive any official communication about the suspension order.
She said the leaders of the party shut the door on their face.

Ampareen said the five legislators had written to the MPCC in January, this year that they were going to be part of the MDA government. “We had sought their consent but there was  no communication”

Ampareen alleged that after receiving the show cause and suspension order in January, the block presidents were removed.

“In my constituency, the block president was removed and within three days, the new president started campaigning as a Congress candidate so you can imagine the confusion that has arisen. This has also happened in other constituencies”, she added.
