Demanding immediate removal of incumbent Meghalaya DGP SB Singh, a five-member BJP delegation called on Chief Election Commissioner in New Delhi on Thursday and also suggested to make special arrangement to ensure free and fair elections in the constituency of Chief Minister Mukul Sangma.
“We suggest immediate removal of Meghalaya DGP SB Singh and appointment of a neutral DGP by the Election Commission,” a five-member BJP delegation said in a memorandum submitted to the Election Commission.
The five-member delegation of Nalin Kohli, Om Pathak, David Kharsati, Bashailang Khongrurr and GC Nongbet in their memorandum also highlighted some incidents, which according to the saffron brigade could create trouble ahead and after the election.
“The Director General of Police, along with some other police officers has been openly campaigning on behalf of Meghalaya chief minister. The matter has been reportedly widely by the media…Since the CM belongs to and is contesting from Garo hills, the militancy, typically has raised its head again ahead of assembly elections. Revival of militancy before the assembly elections is a ruse by the CM to rig elections in his constituency,” the BJP delegation said.
It further said hate speeches by the Congress party and its senior functionaries are regular phenomena. “Communalization of elections along the religious contours is crass violation of provisions of RP Act and model conduct rules,” the BJP said in its memorandum.
In its memorandum, the BJP has also appealed to the EC to seal the international border.
