SHILLONG, May 3: The Bharatiya Jata Party (BJP) in Meghalaya today accused the Congress part of becoming ‘restless’ after understanding the growth of the BJP in the State and the special attention given by the Prime Minister rendra Modi towards the North East region.
In a statement issued here on Sunday, State BJP general secretary Dipayan Chakraborty said, “After being defeated in the last general election and in a few states in the country, the Congress in Meghalaya is sensing that the party is losing its ground in Meghalaya also and therefore the AICC leaders are frequently visiting the State.”
According to him, the reason behind the Congress party losing ground is the anti-poor policy of the State Government, rampant corruptions, lawlessness, anti-teachers policy.
“The ruling party in any State usually speaks well of its achievements and lauds its policies, but since the ruling party in Meghalaya have no achievements and no good policy to highlight, it is now attacking the BJP,” he said.
Chakraborty further stated that the visiting leaders of the Congress party are well aware about the failure of the State Government and to distract public attention, they are speak against the BJP.
The people in the State are well aware about the achievement of rendra Modi Government in last one year, he said.
The general secretary further claimed that the people also appreciates that rendra Modi is seriously working to curb corruption throughout the country which during Congress regime was at its peak. The economy, which was in mess during the Congress rule, is now back on track, he said.
Moreover, development in Northeast, which had come to a halt, is peaking up pace now, he said.

The success of the visit of our tiol president has further motivated our workers and the party is now preparing for a “Congress-free Meghalaya” campaign.”
