Chotcholja(Meghalaya), Jan 27 : With an ardent vision to serve the people of the state, Meghalaya TMC leaders are traversing the length and breadth of the state, taking the message of the party to the masses. While addressing a massive gathering in North Garo Hills, Trinamool Congress Legislature Party Leader and Leader of Opposition Dr. Mukul Sangma assured people of implementing the 10 pledges announced last week.
Meghalaya TMC takes pride to declare that we launched the manifesto before other parties. For everyone who thinks about what will we do after forming the government in the state, we have promised 10 pledges covering education, health, infrastructure, opportunities for the traders, and other signature initiatives, he told the gathering.
Thousands of people had arrived at the Chotcholja Ground to hear Dr. Sangma talk about his party’s vision for the state. Friday’s major event in the district is among a flurry of activities that have been held in the region following AITC Chairperson Mamata Banerjee’s address in Mendipathar on January 18 which had over 50,000 people in attendance.
Taking a jibe at the MDA alliance for running a puppet government, Dr. Mukul Sangma said, “This NPP-led MDA government is being run by those sitting in Delhi. From February 27, we will use our powers to unite and govern this beautiful hill state based on law and order with a sheer understanding of the necessities and concerns of every household of Meghalaya.”
In another event in Resubelpara, Dr. Mukul Sangma urged the people of the state to join hands and ensure the holistic welfare of Meghalaya. “The purpose of an elected representative is to build a state where people can live in peace and future generations live without worry or hassle. This is our state and we need to come forward with a united front to run our state. We have all been victims of the nefarious NPP-led MDA regime. One should use the knowledge given by God to discern and choose who should be elected. One should prevision the consequences that will transpire in the future if we do not unite our state now,” Dr Sangma said, while issuing earnest appeals for “unity and oneness.”
The ground reverberated with slogans of support when Dr Mukul Sangma said, “We all have seen what has happened in the past five years. The land that belongs to Garo is given to Assam. We are the witnesses of the tears and grief of the elderly women of Garo.”
Dr. Sangma also lambasted the NPP government for terming the revolutionary WE Card and MYE Card ” baaki cards” . He said, “We have promised to provide guaranteed income support for women. Some parties have raised questions on how and from where will we give this money. If you wanted to know, join Meghalaya TMC and we will clarify everything.”
