BJP's candidate for Shillong Lok Sabha constituency in Meghalaya Sanbor Swell Lyngdoh has said he left the regional Meghalaya United Democratic Party (MUDP) to join the saffron party because he was impressed with the performance of the NDA government at the centre.

Addressing a public meeting at Mawryngkneng near here yesterday, Lyngdoh criticised the Congress for its alleged poor performance and pointed out that the NDA government could achieve most of its targets within five years which the Congress could not do in 50 years.

While criticising Congress candidate for Shillong seat P R Kyndiah, Lyngdoh called upon the people to ask Kyndiah as to how he had spent the MP development fund.

Turning his attention to regional parties, he said he did not repose faith in them anymore due to continuous infighting and the possibility of frequent splits.

Campaigning for election to the two Lok Sabha seats in Meghalaya -- Shillong and Tura -- to be held on April 20 next has started picking up in the tribal-dominated state with BJP and Congress addressing public meetings at different places.
