FROM A REPORTER
SHILLONG, Feb 16: tiol President of NPP Conrad K Sangma on Friday addressed several election rallies in Songsak and Rongjeng constituency to drum up support for NPP candidate Nihim D Shira and Jim M Sangma.
Addressing a rally at Dagal under Songsak constituency, which was attended by over 3000 people, Conrad said, “Mukul says that I have not done my homework on the roads in plain belt area of Garo Hills. It is a known fact that the roads are in deplorable condition and he is selling dream of NH-127 B, which is yet to become a reality. I am sorry for Mukul that he has failed to even do his homework.”
Talking about a positive era under NPP in Meghalaya, Conrad said, “The people of Meghalaya have suffered a lot under the Congress regime. It is time for the masses to be conscious of their rights and vote for a Government that would ensure them a secure, independent and conducive environment for growth and development”.
He assured the people that NPP would embark on the single agenda of growth and would ensure equity for all the people of the State. “We as a party would ensure that the momentum of growth is not region centric, we have chart out a strategic plan for holistic development of Meghalaya”.
He said that Mukul is scared of NPP and was making all attempt to harp on his so-called ambitious plan of development, which is nothing but attractive trailer of a flop bollywood movie. “He has failed the people of Meghalaya and people have lost their trust on Congress. Let him try whatever he can but this time we will ensure that people are united to dethrone them from power”.
Countering the remark of Mukul for terming Conrad as a “memorandum MP”, Conrad said, “Dr. Mukul you are scared! You have no issues, so you are trying to go all out to say whatever you feel. Let me tell you that the memorandum submitted by me are in the interest of the people. I am concern for my people and will continue to raise issues and concerns with the Central Government and this is my job.”
Stating that Mukul was trying to satisfy his ego by contesting from Songsak constituency, Conrad said, “In 2016 Lok Sabha by-election, he said that he will wipe out NPP from Songsak and Dadenggre but that is only his wishful dream. He is now trying hard to retain even Ampati, so he is contesting Songsak. March 3 will demonstrate that people are not willing to accept him either in Songsak or in Ampati anymore”.
Lambasting Mukul for his false promises and claims of development in Meghalaya, he said, “People from Congress party are coming out in large numbers to join NPP because they are frustrated of his dictatorial attitude. In fact many of the Congress leaders were fed up with him that they decided to join us and contest from NPP and many veteran politicians of the Congress decided not to contest the election because they are not willing to accept defeat”.
