Meghalaya | GHADC polls: Conrad holds 'massive' rally in Mukul's home turf

 Reportedly, about 8,000 people were present during the campaign.

Meghalaya Chief Minister and National President of NPP Conrad K Sangma on Friday held a 'massive' election rally at Ampati, the home turf of Congress leader Dr Mukul Sangma, to seek a mandate for party candidates. 

Reportedly, about 8,000 people were present during the campaign.

“People from across Garo Hills have shown their support to NPP. We are committed to hearing the grievances of our people and better the lives of our citizens. The NPP wave is strong and, we are confident of winning over 20 seats,” Conrad said. 

“NPP is a homegrown party of our people and, in a short period, it has been listed as a national party. We should be proud and further come together to make NPP stronger,” he added. 

Training his guns at the Congress, the NPP chief said that the grand old party has "failed" to initiate any reform and development in 20 years.

"NPP, during its three years tenure, has attempted to initiate financial management and better administration," Conrad said.

Meanwhile, all the five NPP candidates from the five constituencies of South West Garo Hills were present at the party's campaign.

They include -- Premish Sangma from Betasing, Thebarson Arengh from Boldamgre, Premanando Koch from Zikzak, Sanjib T Sangma from Dengnakpara and Lenikar K Sangma from Nogorpara.
