Shillong: The Meghalaya BJP on Thursday
attacked the state government for having some `compulsion` for
maintaining `silence` over the recent firing at the disputed
Langpih village on the Meghlaya-Assam claimed by both the
states.

State BJP general secretary Dipayan Chakraborty
alleged that the Meghalaya government "is either being taken
for a ride by Assam or is maintaining silence under some
compulsion towards Assam."

Terming the incident as a ploy by the Assam goverment
to encroach land, he claimed, "the Assam government in a
well-planned manner is defending encroached land and making
innocent people of a particular community soft targets."

He claimed that a `powerful Assam Minister` was
dictating to his partymen in Meghalaya?
