Congress MP Gourav Gogoi said that the BJP is only talking big but the fact is that out of the three major elections held recently in Delhi, Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, it won in only one state.  

He then said: "The BJP thinks that cash wins votes but Congress thinks that performance wins votes".

“Therefore, we are confident that people will be able to see that our performance, when compared with this government’s performance, is better for the future of Meghalaya,” he added.

The BJP is presently backing the NPP-led Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government.

“The people of Meghalaya should learn from Bengal. When the BJP threatened the people there that they would not form a government without the BJP, they taught them a lesson. The people of Meghalaya should answer to the BJP that we will not succumb to its threat,” Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) leader Vincent H Pala told reporters.
