Meghalaya: Former CM Mukul Sangma Gets Life Threats on Social Media; Writes to Chief Secretary Seeking Action

“People indulging in criminal conspiracy are inciting me to cause communal riots and personal harm.  Just informed CS to take action as per law.

“People indulging in criminal conspiracy are inciting me to cause communal riots and personal harm. Just informed CS to take action as per law.”

The threatening messages to Sangma come in response to the ongoing tussle between the NPP-led coalition and the rest of the non-NPP-BJP MLAs to form the government in the state.

All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) leader and former Chief Minister, Mukul Sangma has written to Meghalaya Chief Secretary DP Pahalang alleging that some supporters of the National People’s Party (NPP) threatened to burn down his house on social media.

In a message to the chief secretary, the Trinamool MLA from Songsak said, “Deliberately inciting hatred and causing personal harm to me in an aggressive manner, take action as per law.”

“People indulging in criminal conspiracy are inciting me to cause communal riots and personal harm. Just reported to CS to take action as per law,” said Dr Sangma.

Following the complaint, the government has increased security outside his house.

The threatening messages to Sangma came in retaliation to the ongoing tussle between the NPP-led coalition to form the government in the state and the rest of the non-NPP-BJP MLAs.

A social media user posted on Facebook and appealed people to go to Dr. Sangma’s house and throw stones and burn effigies. Another user made a communal statement to incite violence.

The NPP won 26 seats and the BJP two seats in the Meghalaya Assembly elections. Congress and Trinamool Congress won five seats each, while UDP got 11 seats. The Voice of the People party won four seats, People’s Democratic Front and Hill State People’s Democratic Party won two seats each and two independent candidates also won.

If all political parties, including two independents, except the NPP and the BJP, come together, they can cross the magic number in the 60-member House.
