Meghalaya: VPP demands revocation of prohibitory order on counting day

Shillong, May 24 (UNI) Meghalaya’s opposition Voice of the People Party (VPP) on Friday demanded revocation of the prohibitory order clamped under Section 144 of the CrPC on counting of votes on June 4 for the Lok Sabha elections.
In a letter to the Deputy Commissioner of East Khasi Hills district, SC Sadhu, VPP General Secretary Dr. Ricky A.J. Syngkon said the the party vehemently opposes the order and termed it “undemocratic and against the spirit of participation in the electoral process of the country.”
“The order reveals not only the weakness and ineptitude of the district administration and the government, but also implies authoritarianism and depriving the people of their right to participate in the democratic process,” Syngkon said.
