Shillong: Following Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) president Vincent Pala accusing the state government of illegalities, NPP Minister Prestone Tynsong Thursday lashed out at the Opposition.

Tynsong said if they (the Congress) have proof to back their allegations, they can always file an FIR and seek legal course of action.

Tynsong’s response came after the state Congress chief alleged that different gates have mushroomed along the Shillong- Jowai road “which acts as ATM for them (Govt) to spend during the election”. Pala was accusing the Meghalaya government of illegally collecting money at these points on the Shillong-Jowai road.

Tynsong, who is also the Meghalaya deputy chief minister, said the Congress chief must have documentary proof while leveling such allegations.

“If he has that (proof), then there would be a nearest police station for him to file an FIR,” stated Tynsong.

Wanting to avoid further debate, Tynsong said if the allegations were true then the Congress party must have quite a number of legal experts within the party so that they could take legal action and, if not, then it is merely allegations.

Asked about claims made by Congress that the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government is the most divided, Tynsong said it was a very immature statement.

“Allegations made during election time is something I feel the voters understand better than anyone else. I’m not surprised that the Congress keeps making mere allegations against the MDA partners,” added Tynsong.

He added that the opposition has no agenda for the upcoming by-poll.
