Meghalaya| Ampati elections- Saga of FIRs continue as Congress now files case

From Our Correspondent

Tura, May 27, 2018

A lot of events have unfolded ahead of the Ampati elections as a spate of FIRs have been filed by the supporters/members of Congress as well as NPP against violation of Model Code of Conduct and the saga continues- The Congress has now filed another FIR against Ian Botham K Sangma, who filed a case against Mukul Sangma for poll code violation yesterday at the Ampati.

The FIR filed today by the president of the SWGH Congress Grace Ch Sangma alleging that the earlier complainant had tried to create false propaganda against the former CM.

“The allegation against Mukul Sangma is completely false as he never went to Bollongitok on May 26 neither in the day nor at night. This can be verified from the SP and his security cover,” said the FIR.

The FIR also questioned as to how Ian Botham, who is not a voter in Ampati, was able to file a case against Mukul Sangma, despite not being a voter – which itself is a violation of the model code of conduct. The FIR also questioned as to how the police allowed him (Ian Botham) to enter Ampati and also accepted his complaint.

“We therefore urge the police to file a case against him for filing a false case against Dr Mukul Sangma and for trying to mislead the public, police and voters,” stated the FIR.
