The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is seeking suggestions from the people of Meghalaya for its manifesto for the upcoming February 27 Assembly election.
While a novelty among the bigger parties, KAM Meghalaya has already been working towards what it also describes as a people’s manifesto. That the BJP is only making its intentions public now – just three weeks from the election – suggests this could be a public relations move or that the party is just genuinely late in coming up with its manifesto.
The BJP has invited people to register their suggestions for the manifesto by giving a missed call to 8360006060 or by logging on to www.mpowermeghalaya.com.
In a press release today, the saffron party said it has launched an “aspiration collection drive” that is aimed at recording the dreams and wishes of the people of Meghalaya so that they “may be drafted into a manifesto that the party will release for the upcoming elections.”
The next five years will mark a historic shift in the way that the state is governed, BJP added. “Thus far, decisions are being made in wooden panelled boardrooms according to the whims of the rulers who are driven by their own interests. Now, leaders, as public servants, will implement projects on the basis of the real needs of the people of Meghalaya even from the remotest locations. This departure from the accepted way of misgovernance in Meghalaya will usher in a new era of development and uplift the entire state in a role model,” it stated in grandiose terms.
