SHILLONG,June 02: The leader of the BJP who is also the MLA of South Shillong constituency, Sanbor Shullai said that the President of the BJP, Ernest Mawrie cannot just speak as he please to withdraw support from the MDA Government led by the NPP, but he should get approval and signature from him also as an MLA of the party.
This statement of Sanbor y comes after he could no longer just listen to the war of words between the leaders of the NPP and the President of the BJP, whereby the matter of withdrawing support from the Government also came up.
Sanbor Shullai also warned Mawrie that he should not speak about withdrawing support from the Government without his knowledge, and if he wants to then he should speak on a personal level and not in the name of the BJP.
He said that from the formative stages of the MDA Government, it was the leaders from Delhi who directed them to accept extending support the Government led by the NPP, and only the leaders from Delhi have the authority to direct them to withdraw support from the Government. He said that henceforth if anything is to be spoken, information is to be given and approval sought and nothing is to be spoken as one pleases in the name of the BJP.
