Shillong, Nov 21: Chief Minister Conrad Sangma on Sunday criticised the BJP in-charge Chuba Ao for his statement against the regional political parties from the North East region that they always go to Delhi with a “begging bowl”.
Terming the statement as unfortunate, Sangma said, “Well I dont know why he (Dr Ao) had made this statement as he himself is from the North East. He has full knowledge on how things work in the North East. It is unfortunate that he has made a comparison in that line and with that statement he has brought down his own people and has made them look in a very bad light.”
Sangma said the BJP leader has not done his home work properly before making such statements.
“I strongly feel he has not done his home work and is trying to make a political statement,” he said.
He further said, “But the fact of the matter is yes majority funds do come from central government, even the taxes and different schemes majority of the funds came from the central taxes but that is a way the government of India works and that is why finance commission works in this aspect.
