Congress leaders in their campaigns have been projecting that the tribal NPP is only keeping a strategic distance from the BJP in a Christian-majority state and that both will come together after the polls.

The BJP on Saturday demanded an apology from Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for comparing the National People's Party, the local party in Meghalaya, which is allying with the BJP during the upcoming Assembly elections, to dogs.

The BJP has been actively trying to woo Christian voters in Meghalaya, sending union minister KJ Alphons to list out the good things it has done to members of that community, while the Congress has been trying to show it was all a sham.

"I like to validate the excellent performance of the congress government here because I believe in politics of performances".

Ram Madhav tweeted, "This is d indecent remark reportedly made by Shashi Tharoor, who pretends to occupy moral high ground, in Meghalaya about NPP n BJP: It (NPP) was attached to d BJP as a tail "that wags whenever d dog barks". Once again, Meghalaya is at the fore front".

New indictment filed against former Trump campaign chief
The adviser, Rick Gates, is a longtime political consultant who once served as Mr Trump's deputy campaign chairman. The indictment does not name other members of the group or say how many former politicians were involved.

The NPP, founded by former Lok Sabha Speaker Purno A. Sangma to champion the cause of the people of the northeast, is supporting the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government at the Centre, Rajasthan and Manipur.

Talking about the Social Audit Law which was passed a year ago, Tharoor said "This is remarkable-no other place in the country gives the public the right to audit and keep track of developmental schemes and be able to say as a matter of legal right, enforced by a law, the right to audit programmes". "Even the first NDA government did not dare to tamper with the idea of India as a country of all people", he told journalists here.

The Congress leader said Meghalaya had gone ahead of Kerala in the female literacy rate due to the state government's commitment to the Right to Education Act. "That is their only message", said the MP.

During the press conference Tharoor had also said that the BJP is trying to change the very nature of India. Is this how you treat a political party. He also held informal meetings in Police Bazaar and Assam Club.
