Shillong, November 18: The President of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Ernest Mawrie said that till date no one has sought a ticket for the MLA Election from the BJP from Tura, except Bernard Marak.
He said the party has not confirmed any one yet but till date they have only aspirants who are trying to get a ticket for the Election. He said that Bernard at present is also only an aspirant, but he has been preparing well for the MLA Election from Tura.
It may be pointed that Bernard N.Marak after being granted bail this week announced that he will be contesting the MLA Election from South Tura against the Chief Minister of Meghalaya, Conrad Kongkal Sangma.
With regards to Bernard’s arrest and bail from prison, Mawrie said that he does not want to comment on the Court ruling but said that the bail granted to Bernard is due to the lack of evidence and proof against him.
