Meghalaya BJP president Ernest Mawrie today informed the media that the state party will file a complaint to the Election Commission against the Trinamool Congress’s ‘We Meghalaya Campaign ‘.
The We Meghalaya campaign, which has been introduced recently by TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee, aims to provide financial assistance of Rs 1,000 to one woman in every household in the state. The party has assured the people in the state that this campaign will be functional if they are elected to power at the 2023 Meghalaya election.
Mawrie alleged that the TMC is making false promises. “TMC is a West Bengal party and claims to be a national party. They don’t have genuine issues to raise and so they have brought this We Card, which is a failed scheme in West Bengal,” Mawrie said.
A version of the We Card does exist in West Bengal.
The BJP will file a complaint with the Election Commission that the TMC violates certain guidelines mandated by the commission under Article 324, which states that parties should avoid making promises that are likely to vitiate the purity of the election process.
