NEW DELHI, June 6 - The BJP today termed as �false and malicious untruth� reports that it wants to impose a ban on beef in Meghalaya as another party leader in the State quit protesting the Centre�s controversial notification on cattle.

The party said any such decision is for the State Government to take. Nalin Kohli, who is Meghalaya in-charge for the BJP, blamed the

Congress for spreading this �malicious untruth� and accused it of communalising the political agenda in the state going to polls next year.

Consumption of beef is common in much of the north-eastern States and the saffron party, whose many leaders are vocal against beef-eating, has been accused by its rivals of working to impose a ban in the region as well.

�The dirty tricks department of the Congress is trying to communalise the agenda with a false and malicious untruth that the BJP wants to impose a beef ban on the state of Meghalya.

�Nothing is farther from the truth since under our constitutional scheme, the central government cannot encroach on the area of what a state government has to decide,� Kohli said.

The BJP�s single point agenda for Meghalaya is Prime Minister Narendra Modi�s �Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas� and it is gearing up to contest the assembly elections on this positive agenda of development, he said. It will also expose �rampant corruption, unfulfilled promises and lack of development� under the Congress government of Mukul Sangma, he said. � PTI
