Meghalaya CM kicks bike rally in SW Garo Hills

Guwahati: National People’s Party (NPP) Chief Conrad K Sangma declared today that his group is dedicated to making sure that young people have access to employment possibilities.

In the midst of the thumping of the bikes, Sangma entered Ampati, the traditional stronghold of TMC leader Dr. Mukul Sangma, after travelling more than 20 kilometres in front of a cavalcade of over 2000 motorcyclists.

Speaking at an election gathering in Ampati, he promised that the NPP would create 5 lakh employment through various entrepreneurship projects and programmes.

According to him, the NPP government launched several welfare programmes for young people over the previous five years, including PRIME, an initiative that offered financial support and training for entrepreneurial endeavours.

“Our party has been committed to the welfare of the youth, through programmes like PRIME, we have promoted entrepreneurship in Meghalaya,” he said.

He claimed that NPP has made an effort to use initiatives like ASPIRE Meghalaya and YESS Meghalaya to harness the positive potential of young people.

He further said that youth in the State have potential in sports, music and other co-curricular activities, and the NPP will continue to promote youth programmes by organising local, state and regional sports and games to give them opportunities to them. “In the next five years, if we get the mandate of the people, we will continue with our programme for leveraging the positive energy of our youth,” he assured. 

He told the crowd that the NPP did not win any seats in South West Garo Hills in 2018 and that it was difficult for the government to launch development initiatives since all of the MLAs belonged to the opposition and did not cooperate with it.

He claimed that NPP was poised to win an absolute majority in the State and that it was essential for South West Garo Hills to band together to support NPP.

“It is important that MLAs collaborate with the Government. It is always best to have MLAs from the ruling side,” the NPP chief said. 

He claimed that the TMC is split and that many TMC followers are now defecting to the NPP because they believe that the TMC has no future.

In today’s meetings, a large number of TMC supporters also joined the NPP to support the candidature of Stevie Marak, Subir Marak, Sanjay A Sangma and Ian Botham K Sangma.

There were over 7000 attendees during the meeting.
