BJP's dangerous games could destabilise northeast: Congress
March 05, 2018  13:27
Spotlighting the differences between the BJP and its coalition partners in the northeast, the Congress today accused the party of playing a "dangerous game' of destabilising the region through its "blind quest for power at any cost'.

The differences are on key issues such as the bifurcation of Tripura and Meghalaya, Congress communications in-charge Randeep Surjewala said in a series of tweets as the BJP was set to form government with its partners in the northeast states of Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland.

"BJP is following a dangerous game of destabilisation, subversion and usurpation of power in North East, unmindful of the stability, security, peace and progress. Hope Modiji had cared to learn from Rajivji who put 'Nation First' and brought peace to the region by Assam and Mizo accords,' he said.

Every Indian, he added, is concerned that assumption of power 'at any cost' and 'by any means' by the BJP doesn't blind it into destabilising the entire region.

"Tell tale signs of BJP's blind quest for power superseding the stability of region, propagation of democracy, nipping the separatist tendencies and ignoring core issues of region are already visible,' Surjewala said.
