Meghalaya BJP is all set to move to the Centre for ensuring a fair and impartial probe into the sudden removal of Meghalaya governor V Shanmuganatahan.

“The issue of removal of former Meghalaya governor is not a closed chapter for state BJP, said Meghalaya BJP president Shibun Lyngdoh, adding, “We will again raise this issue during the upcoming national executive committee meeting which will held in the month of April.”

Lyngdoh further added that the state party will request the BJP high command to take up the matter with the Central government for speeding up the instituting of a free and fair inquiry into the incident at the Meghalaya Raj Bhavan. Meghalaya BJP had earlier also shot a letter to its high command in this regard.

It may be mentioned here, the former Meghalaya Governor V Shanmuganathan was forced to resign on January 26, last after nearly 100 employees of the Raj Bhavan lodged a complaint with the Prime Minister and the President for his alleged role in turning the Raj Bhavan into a ‘young ladies club’.

Earlier, BJP had alleged that the allegations leveled by the Raj Bhavan staff were part of a ‘big conspiracy’. “There is a big conspiracy (into the allegations made by the Raj Bhavan staff) right from the state government itself,” said BJP state vice president Bashailang Khongwir.
