BJP MDC from Tura – Bernard Marak has denied the charges of assault on GHADC executive member Dhormonath Sangma. 

The GHADC authorities had filed an FIR against Bernard Marak alleging that he had assaulted GHADC EM Dhormonath Sangma on Friday. 

However, Bernard Marak denied the charges on Monday saying that there was only a heated argument. 

In a statement, Bernard claimed that there was a heated argument in regards to allotment of Rs 9.70 lakh to Tura constituency.

“They lied about CM and Dr Ao and also about the fund, with sole intention to create a division in the coalition. Now they revealed that Rs 1.57 crore was sanctioned for Tura but all the proposals submitted by Tura MDC were rejected,” Bernard Marak said in a statement. 

“I cannot let my people be deprived by such corrupt practices and I will not keep quiet. I request the CM and Dr Chuba Ao to look into the matter as in all the wrong things happening in GHADC they blame BJP incharge and Chief Minister for keeping me in the opposition which has not been sanctioned constitutionally under the Sixth Schedule,” Marak said. 

Bernard added, “They intruded into my area without informing me and tried to take away the funds meant for the people through these overestimated projects. They should have at least consulted me in utilising the fund as I was the MDC in Tura and part of the coalition.”
