Meghalaya: “Opposition has put their hands down, NPP wave is across Garo Hills”, says Conrad
Meghalaya Chief Minister and national president of the National People's Party (NPP) Conrad K Sangma, on Thursday, claimed that prominent leaders from opposition parties are pledging their support to NPP, as "people across party lines have seen the visible development in the State."
Addressing an election rally at Rongara in South Garo Hills ahead of the election to the Garo Hills Autonomous District Council (GHADC), Sangma said that the opposition has "put their hands down" and are not even campaigning as the wave of NPP is across the region.
“We are confident of getting an absolute majority in the council election and form the executive committee”, he said.
Sangma said that the government is committed to fast track development in the South Garo Hills region.
He said that the present government has undertaken various projects, which would bear fruit by 2023, before the next Meghalaya Legislative Assembly elections.
He assured that the NPP-led government is committed to the "upliftment of social, infrastructural, and economical transformation."
The chief minister also informed that the government has conceptualised a road map for various tourist hotspots in the South Garo Hills region.
“Council needs assistance and support from the Govt and, it is imperative that people vote for the ruling party, and enable the GHADC to perform and make a difference in the lives of our people,” he added.
