SHILLONG, Aug 31: Meghalaya Congress has slammed BJP-led NDA government for playing politics with National Green Tribunal (NGT) ban on coal mining in Meghalaya. “Just to fool the people, BJP is politicising the issue of NGT ban,” senior cabinet minister and Congress  leader Zenith Sangma said adding, “People who are with the mining activities and is affected by the NGT ban will get different option to go with BJP and that is the politics that the saffron party is playing.”

Zenith’s reaction came a day after two independent legislators Justine Dkhar and Robinus Syngkon (who joined the BJP) revealed that they have set conditions before joining the BJP for withdrawal of NGT ban on coal mining and exempting Meghalaya from the purview of central mining laws through the Presidential notification using the provision under the Sixth Schedule to the Constitution.

All these were possible after recent visit of BJP national general secretary Nalin Kohli who claimed that BJP will solve the issue if it is voted to power.

Zenith said for the sake of playing politics BJP is saying like that with just six months left for the poll. “How can BJP make such claim as if NGT is at their disposal?” Sangma questioned.
