Shillong, May 23: The Meghalaya Pradesh Youth Congress (MPYC) today slammed Chief Minister Conrad Kongkal Sangma for his statement stressing that it was only the National People’s Party (NPP) which can form the government at the state. “Isn’t this too much talk coming from someone who isn’t even elected to the Assembly yet?” the MPYC asked.
The state Youth Congress alleged that Conrad’s someone whose greed knows no bounds.
They pointed out that he is a Member of Parliament, but his greed is such that he tried to get himself nominated as an MDC and be nominated the CEM and now, he gets himself nominated as the Chief Minister of Meghalaya without even getting elected as an MLA.
The state Youth Congress also challenged that if Conrad is really the leader that he projects himself to be, he should have resigned his Lok Sabha seat and stood for elections “… and if he got elected and became the Chief Minister, more respect to him,” the MPYC said.
“ But instead, he hides behind his partymen, making deals with his BJP masters and once his masters have made the way clear for them to form the government, swoops down and claims the Chief Minister’s seat for himself,” the MPYC added.
The MPYC also questioned the NPP-led Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government for failing to release the salary of the Garo Hill Autonomous District Council (GHADC) employees. According to the Youth Congress the NPP, while it was in the opposition, pointed fingers at the Congress-led government for not disbursing salary of the GHADC employees.
The MPYC said that now that the NPP has formed the government at the state and part of the NDA government at the centre and have formed the Executive Council at the GHADC, but still funds are not flowing and the GHADC employees are not being paid their salaries.
