BJP State president, Ernest Mawrie today hit out at the NPP for its sudden urge to work for the people just before the Assembly elections including inauguration spree and laying of foundation stones across the State.
Drawing a parallel with the Congress government of 2014, Mawrie said that NPP is aware of its declining popularity and rising anger among the people against the party.
“The NPP is well aware of the fact that they have done nothing for the people in the last four years and five months. They know that the people are ready to vote them out. And just like the drowning Congress in 2014 (before the Lok Sabha elections), the drowning NPP is now on an inauguration and foundation stone laying spree,” Mawrie said.
According to Mawrie, most of the projects are being inaugurated in an incomplete state and foundations stones are being laid with no proper planning or resource mobilisation.
“This is too little, too late. All this is being done to fool the voters into trusting the NPP once again,” he said.
Mawrie further asserted that most of the developmental works that have been done in the State in the last 4.5 years have been through the Central government schemes.
On the FOCUS scheme too, Mawrie wondered as to where the money really came from.
“No amount of renaming and rebranding of Central government schemes, or redirecting of Central government funds, is going to fool the people. The people of Meghalaya are aware of the impact that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has brought to their lives, and the people have decided to bring a BJP-led double engine government in Meghalaya as well,” he said.
