Meghalaya: Abhishek Banerjee Demands Report for Five Years of NPP Govt.
National People’s Party had a majority in the previous elections and was the majority in the Meghalaya Development Alliance
SHILLONG: After the ending of the polls in the state of Tripura, the focus has now shifted to the states of Meghalaya and Nagaland. And multiple players in the political arena of the state have started with their poling campaigns.
Speaking at one of such events in the state of Meghalaya, the general secretary for the Trinamool Congress party demanded a report of the work done by the National People’s Party from the previous chief minister and head of the party, Conrad K Sangma.
The National People’s Party had a majority in the previous elections and was the majority in the Meghalaya Development Alliance which formed the previous government in the state. Bharatiya Janata Party was also one of the coalition partners in this alliance.
Addressing an election rally on Thursday, Abhishek Banerjee asked for a report of their work regarding their claims of employment generation. He also claimed that lakhs of unemployed youth from Meghalaya had registered for the Trinamool Congress’s MYE Card scheme. He had taken part in two rallies in the Ampati and Williamnagar regions of the state for Miani D Shira and Alphonsush R Marak respectively.
He also promised the stop and reverse the trend of the youth of the state moving to different locations across the country to seek employment by creating new avenues in the state itself.
“Conrad Sangma says that Meghalaya has the lowest unemployment rate. But when Trinamool launched the MYE card scheme, more than four lakh jobless youths registered for it,” the TMC leader mentioned.
He also mentioned that if his party comes to power, one woman member of each household will receive Rs 1000 per month in their accounts and the process will begin within a month of their coming to power. The same will be given to the qualifying unemployed youth of the state.
