The minister assured the family of all support while also assuring them of quick action against those responsible for the murder of the MLA aspirant. "Has he forgotten his own responsibility", Sangma told IANS.
Singh said at a rally in Songsak on Monday that the killing of Williamnagar NCP candidate in an IED blast at Samanda in East Garo Hills on Sunday showed that utter chaos and lawlessness was prevailing in Congress-ruled Meghalaya.
"He (Singh) is in a hard terrain".
Taking advantage of the dissent against the Mukul Sangma government in the state, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is hoping to win elections in the state like it did in Assam in 2016 and in Manipur in 2017, has launched a scathing attack against the Congress.
He said, "Our proposal to strengthen police stations which were approved by the UPA-II government were all withheld by the BJP government at the centre".
"We (the Meghalaya government) have never compromised on tackling insurgency and restoring peace. The global border is porous and the Union minister is playing politics", the chief minister said.
The Congress boss also urged the people of the state not to vote for a party (the BJP) that is trying to divide the country.
On Rajnath Singh's comment that if the BJP was not voted to power, the health insurance scheme with Rs 5 lakh coverage, which was recently rolled out, would be hard to implement, the chief minister said, "We are not beggars".
