TMC general secretary Abhishek Banerjee today pledged that the party would ensure Meghalaya emerges as the number one state in the country.
Culminating his four-day visit to the state, Banerjee addressed an election rally at Mylliem and said, “This is our word to you that we will make Meghalaya top the charts in every social indicator – be it healthcare, education, or infrastructure. We will ensure that Meghalaya emerges as number one [state] in the country in the days to come.”
Reiterating TMC’s 10 Pledges he said, “I give you my word that after Trinamool Congress forms the government in Meghalaya, all the 10 Pledges will be kept and fulfilled. We will try to implement the three pledges to the best of our abilities within three months…We are not doing you any favour as this is your right but you have been deprived of it for the past five years.”
He also slammed Chief Minister Conrad Sangma for failing to protect the people of Meghalaya and take a stand for them in the past five years. “Five innocent civilians and farmers were killed in Mukroh. Poor farmers, returning after work from paddy fields, were labelled as timber smugglers. Do you really need a CM who doesn’t have the spine and courage to stand for the people of his own state?” he asked the people.
The event was attended by Meghalaya State In-Charge Dr. Manas Ranjan Bhunia, Meghalaya TMC State President Charles Pyngrope, Meghalaya TMC Vice-President James Lyngdoh, and Meghalaya TMC candidate from Mylliem Gilbert Guidingstar Laloo.
