SHILLONG, April 17: The United Democratic Party (UDP), Garo Hills unit on Saturday reviewed the situatiol reports from all districts under the sector and dwelt upon preparedness for the 2018 Assembly elections, in a meeting held at Williamgar playground.
The meeting, which was chaired by Pa BG Momin, chief adviser of UDP, presented an overall picture of the political scerio in Garo Hills.
Allantry Franklin Dkhar in his brief speech reminded the gathering of the need to sensitize the electorate to replicate the wisdom of the Delhi electorate who had rejected both Congress and BJP in the capital city of the tion.
He requested the gathering to drive home the recent revelation of the Chief Minister, that the Congress is bereft of leaders to replace him, while UDP has no dearth of leaders who are capable of taking the state onto the right path, to ensure a brighter future for the next generations.
Metbah Lyngdoh exhorted the gathering to take serious note of the recent political changes which if harnessed and ably applied, will awaken the public to the reality of Congress governce and in turn will help the party regain its space in Garo Hills.
He stressed on the need to reach out to the people from the grassroots level and to educate them on the importance of their vote and on their choice of voting. Paul Lyngdoh termed the language communication problem between the major tribes of the state as a casualty of governce without vision.
“Having to rely on English and Hindi as a medium to communicate after more than 40 years of statehood, is indicative enough of the present sorry state of affairs,” he said.
He informed the meeting that the days of Congress misrule are numbered and that is why, the UDP has to be prepared as it is the only viable altertive. He reminded the meeting of that UDP stands for unity, development and peace without which our state will always be subjected to the ills of corruption.
