Meghalaya: BJP serves show cause notice to MDC Pramod Koch for indiscipline
The state Bharatiya Janata Party president Ernest Mawrie issued a show cause notice to BJP MDC Pramod Koch for violating party discipline and was given 10 days’ time to reply to the show-cause notice.
In a letter to Koch, the BJP president stated that the former had aligned with and supported the NPP led Executive Committee and also for going public in expressing his views contrary to the stated position of the party.
Koch was charged with violating party discipline and Mawrie said, “..in not only unilaterally aligning with and supporting the NPP led EC but also for going public in expressing your views contrary to the stated position of the party.”
He (Mawrie) added that the conduct of the MDC tantamount to serious breach of Party discipline falling within the ambit of the Disciplinary Rules of the Party which include - Rule (d) taking a party dispute to any other agency outside the party including print and electronic media and Rule (f) acting in a way calculated to lower the prestige of the party or carrying on any propaganda against any party unit or its office bearers.
It may be mentioned that state BJP leaders have pledged to not work with the NPP led Garo Hills Democratic Coalition (GHDC).
However, Kock supported the coalition giving a boost to the GHDC.
