Chief Minister and National President of NPP Conrad K Sangma on Tuesday expressed confidence that his party will get an “absolute majority” in the ensuing GHADC elections, saying he has witnessed the mood of the people.
Sangma was addressing an election rally at Dadenggre under Jengjal GHADC constituency in West Garo Hills, where he was campaigning for party candidate Grahambell A Sangma.
Grahambell had lost the 2015 GHADC election with a small margin of 46 votes.
Sangma said that the wave of NPP across Garo Hills is upbeat and people are turning out in large numbers to support NPP. He told the gathering that he has been touring different districts in the past eight days and has witnessed the mood of the people.
He said that the government is committed to transform health, education and social sector with major investment interventions and sought people’s vote for the NPP to transform the GHADC.
Talking on the steps taken to reform council, he said that NPP led Executive Committee have initiated the measures and the strategy to streamline the council was in place, however due to paucity of time, it could not be materialised.
He said when NPP gets absolute majority, its Executive Committee would be able to complete unfinished task to reform and strengthen the district council.
