Meghalaya | GHADC polls: CM banks on Govt’s development to woo voters
Meghalaya Chief Minister and National President of the National People's Party (NPP) Conrad K Sangma, on Saturday, banked on the ruling party’s development intervention in the State to woo voters ahead of the ensuing election to the Garo Hills Autonomous District Council (GHADC).
Addressing a gathering at Rangagora under Bolsong GHADC constituency in North Garo Hills, Sangma said that the NPP-led ruling party has been able to "initiate various development interventions in road, education and health sector."
“We are committed to creating better road infrastructure in the State, improve education and health infrastructure in the State. Our Government is working to make a difference for our people. We have started our mission to transform Meghalaya and, in the next two years, more initiatives will be taken up to better the lives of our people”, he said.
In the last three years, an investment of Rs 2000 crore was made in enhancing and improving road connectivity in Garo Hills, including neglected roads and bridges in Garo Hills, he stated.
“Opposition parties will come and spread lies, but we have, before us, the visibility and development interventions made by the ruling Government. Let us not get carried away and unitedly vote for NPP,” Sangma added.
In the last 12 days, Sangma has campaigned in almost 20 different constituencies of Garo Hills and has addressed over 50 election meetings.
Exuding confidence, the chief minister reiterated that the NPP's wave is "very strong" and the people of Garo Hills have come together to support the party.
