NPP to go it alone in 2023 Assembly election: Meghalaya CM Conrad Sangma
"We have always contested the election of our own. We never had any alliance with any other party in any of the states. There is neither a special policy for our state right now nor a special stand with the BJP.
TURA: "We have always contested the election of our own. We never had any alliance with any other party in any of the states. There is neither a special policy for our state right now nor a special stand with the BJP. This is our general policy with all states and with all political parties. The NPP always fights elections on its own." Meghalaya CM Conrad Sangma said today during the distribution of financial assistance to eligible youth groups under the Youth Engagement through Empowered Youth Organizations (YESS) initiative, on the occasion of International Youth Day.
Meghalaya CM also said that politics in every region is different. "I am not sure about the politics in Bihar. There must be something happening in Bihar. But if you go the other way in Maharashtra, the Shiv Sena and BJP are combined and get back to their alliance again. From that angle, some have left but some have come back also. Therefore, this kind of thing happens based on the local politics of that particle state and hence one cannot draw conclusions from the overall political scenario in the state."
Asking whether the TMC is progressing in the northeast, he said, "If taking away some MLAs from another political party is progress, then they have progressed but also they have almost 30-40% of them already leaving from the TMC who have joined them around 6 months back. Today already 5 or 6 have already started talking about different political parties. So, it really depends on your word of progress. But yes, in politics there will never be a vacuum and if there is space and vacuum in a system then a party can take that space. The TMC has been trying to take the space of the opposition where Congress is disintegrated. But in the process of disintegration, Congress and TMC were not able to take full advantage of the situation so they have met certain progress in terms of a few steps forward and they have also taken a few steps back. So, the real taste of the political situation will be 2023 elections."
Asking about the unemployment in Meghalaya, CM said that to solve the problems of unemployment to the youth there is a solution through entrepreneurship. "Until the youth will not take interest in business, we don't give importance to adding value to the resources for the small industries and the unemployment will not be solved. The government has started a big program called the Prime Meghalaya program where entrepreneurs will be helped. Today you can see many entrepreneurs have come. Like this, every year there is competition between them where thousands of entrepreneurs participate and we support them financially, provide loans with interest and also help to contact them with big institutes. So in these few years, we are able to see many companies have started in different sectors, especially in the agro-based sector and tourism sector in Meghalaya through which many people have been employed. And I believe if we continue this policy we can solve the unemployment problem," Sangma while distributing financial assistance to eligible youth groups under the Youth Engagement through Empowered Youth Organizations (YESS) initiative, on International Youth Day.
