Shillong: Meghalya deputy chief minister Prestone Tynsong has now slammed the Opposition parties for claiming that the government has failed in dealing with the pandemic and said that the government would refrain from reminding the Opposition their mistakes since the MDA government “are not cheap politicians”.
Tynsong’s response comes after the Opposition Congress in the state had criticised the government in failing to deal with the COVID-19 crisis in the state.
Tyngsong clarified that isolated cases do happen and one cannot be perfect. He stated that it was the job of the Opposition to criticise the government.
“For the Opposition if it is white they will say that it is black that is opposition. Everybody knows their role, but ultimately let the people judge how we are handling and trying our best to fight against this pandemic,” said Tynsong.
He further added that flaws are always there one cannot help it since we are not perfect and nobody will be able to do that also.
Tynsong said that is the rule of the Opposition to come into the limelight on and off else people will forget them. “They will once in a while come out with these kinds of statements so that is not a problem. We will continue to do our job for the best interest of the people of the state,” said Tynsong.
He added that it is clear that the Opposition needs to create their existence in front of the people of the state that is why these allegations.
“During their leadership did they not make any mistakes? So the Opposition should learn to not look only at our mistakes but at our work also. They should weigh whether our mistakes or our success is greater,” Tynsong added.
