Meghalaya CM Launches Poll Campaign, Highlights ‘Phenomenal’ Feats of NPP-led Govt

Guwahati: The National People’s Party (NPP) supremo and CM of Meghalaya Conrad K. Sangma began his election campaign for his home district of 51-South Tura on January 30.

Sangma staged a massive show of force at New Tura Law College on January 30 to rally support for NPP ahead of the approaching elections on February 27.

The Chief Minister also highlighted the several development projects his administration has been working on over the past five years, calling them “phenomenal” in light of the state’s over 45 years of underdevelopment, notably in the Garo Hills and Tura constituency.

”Youth as the voters of Tura endorsed my candidate in the by-election and voted me into victory with a record margin of over 8500 victory margin. With your support we were able to complete a lot of work in five years for the entire state and Tura as well,” he said while addressing the gathering.

He also reassured the people who have blessed him with their support that the NPP will continue to work for them and added, ”We do not make empty promises, we deliver them. Urge the people’s support to ensure the victory of NPP in 2023”. 

”To serve the people of South Tura in the past 5 years has been personally fulfilling as we worked together to restore the glory of our beloved Tura town. Our actions have spoken, my commitment remains- we are for development and we are for the people,” he added.

Sangma also danced with the people to the NPP anthem and said, ”Grateful for all the love showered by the people at the 51-South Tura General Election Meeting of the National People’s Party”. 

He spoke to the group about the MGNREGS job card programme which has grown significantly over the past 20 years.

”In 2018, the funding was only around Rs 500 crores for MGNRES in our state, but after we took over, it has touched Rs 1800 crores which would not have been possible but because we monitored and implemented each and every project through governance,” he added.

In his remarks on the Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM), Sangma said that Meghalaya has emerged as a leader in the JJM’s implementation among other states.

The NPP leader continued by saying that New Delhi had taken notice of the improvements accomplished in Meghalaya during the last five years.

”There was a perception in New Delhi that Meghalaya was unable to utilize the funds given to the state. But now, they talk about the progress being made in the field of development which is no small feat. This a boost for the state,” he added.
