Former deputy chief minister RC Laloo, who retired from politics, has again surfaced and this time as a campaigner for TMC Jowai candidate, Andrew Shullai.
Laloo, who was had pulled away from contesting the last Assembly elections in 2018 attended a meeting to garner support for Shullai along with Jowai North NPP MDC, Brightstar Chyrmang.
At an event held at Shullai’s residence in Jowai, Laloo said, “Andrew is full of hope. Let us choose hope – not only for this generation but for the future generation too. I told him [Shullai] to have determination in this fight for the people of Jowai. Let us think before we vote, as the future of the coming generations is also at stake. I urge you all to have faith in Andrew, and I assure you that he will win this election.”
Chyrmang slammed the NPP led MDA government stating that it has left the people of Meghalaya in disarray. “I have come here to support Andrew Shullai as this NPP-led MDA government did nothing for our people. We have seen a lot of problems in the district council like not getting our salaries and delayed disbursal of central government funds. This government has not supported us in any way. Hence, I have come here to stand with Andrew Shullai.”
Shullai stated that the MDA government failed to provide essential healthcare to the public, merely running the state without bothering to fulfill their responsibility. He spoke about the WE Card Scheme and MYE Card and the party’s manifesto.
Former CEM of JHADC, Madonbai Rymbai, Jaintia Students Union leader Neman Shadap, HITO leader Juvenile Rymbai, and Moonlight Pariat Leader Dawan Dkhar were also present at the event.
