Another section of Congress workers today came out in large numbers at the Congress Bhawan to declare that the Meghalaya Pradesh Youth Congress (MPYC) and the student’s wing of the party, the National Students’ Union of India in Meghalaya are “alive”.
This section was led by Banphira Basaiawmoit of the Indian Youth Congress and NSUI former general secretary, Arkin Warjri.
“We are still alive and still here and still working very hard. We will come up harder and move forward with all members of NSUI,” Warjri said at the press conference.
He said even though the NSUI was dissolved new names will be submitted to the national president to revive it and declared, “When the going gets tough the tough gets going.”
Stating that the recent mass resignation of members from the youth Congress was not the end of the party, Basaiawmoit stated that members left the party in an “undemocratic way” and they see it as an attempt to deviate the attention of people of Meghalaya from the real issues facing the State.
Basaiawmoit said the public, especially the youths should not be swayed by these “dramatic exits and resignations.” The youth Congress have vouched to work on issues that need to be highlighted like unemployment, economic state of affairs, to name a few, he added.
He said enrollment to the youth Congress, which commenced two months back, will be completed by December 12, 2021 through a democratic process, adding that as per their data base more than 20,000 youths have enrolled.
