Shillong, Nov 29 (PTI) The National People's Party (NPP) has accused the opposition Congress of trying to destabilise the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government by making baseless allegations.

The MDA government is led by the NPP.

'Yes, they (Congress) are trying to destabilise the NPP-led MDA government (by making allegations after allegations) despite the fact that the issues they are raising have already been addressed,' NPP Spokesman Marcuise N Marak told reporters on Saturday.

The Congress has denied the allegations of Marak that it is trying to destabilise the MDA government.

The Congress has demanded a CBI inquiry into the alleged multi-crore scams in the Meghalaya Power Department.
