Meghalaya Roster System: VPP to stage hunger strike; Opposition endorse govt decision
To protest the roster system
On Friday, the VPP staged a walkout from the all-party roster system meeting and declared an indefinite hunger strike beginning on May 23. However, despite the VPP's challenges, the TMC, BJP, and Congress were satisfied with the government's presentation at the all-party meeting.
The party's president, Ardent Basaiawmoit, will conduct the hunger strike. The VPP has made the decision to withdraw from the committee overseeing the roster system that was revealed by the government on Friday. It necessitated an examination of the reservation policy.
According to Basaiawmoit, the VPP members staged the walkout because the administration was unwilling to talk about the reserve policy.
Conrad K. Sangma, the chief minister, questioned the reasoning for the VPP's actions. "I am unable to follow the rationale used by the VPP. They discussed all of the challenges at first. Now that we are giving them clarification, they are bringing up yet another problem, Sangma added.
"Almost all political parties are aware of what the administration is doing...There are obstacles and there always will be, but practically all political parties, even the opposition, have welcomed the method we are using and the manner we are thinking about moving forward. They are looking for some clarifications, but they have a general idea of how to proceed, the CM stated.
He claimed that the VPP made the decision to stage the hunger strike politically.
