The BJP state chief has been facing the ire from the NPP-led Meghalaya Democratic Alliance government, including Legislators from his own party, for ”raising issues of corruption”.

Sangma has denied the allegations of corruption in his government and has asked the BJP president to raise evidence-based issues.

Governor Malik told UNI that he has not come across any corruption, while reviewing the Centrally-sponsored schemes implemented in the state.

However, Mawrie said the Governor should first ‘instruct’ the Chief Minister to provide answers to the RTIs filed by the party.

:’The Governor should instruct the government to provide answers to the queries filed under RTI by our party,” he added.

”We have filed RTIs on the implementation of the Centrally-sponsored Saubhagya scheme and are yet to get replies from the Power department. We have also filed an RTI on the Rs 400 crore COVID-19 spending and replies have not been received,” said the BJP state head.
