The Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government has achieved little or nothing over its six years in power, Shillong MP Vincent Pala, leader of the state Congress Party, said today.
Speaking at a press conference, Pala said that the MDA has promised to generate employment for 5 lakh people over five years but has not been able to hit even 20 percent (or 1 lakh) of that target. And employment was not Pala’s only target.
“If you divide 5 lakh by five years, how many have been employed? Zero,” he said. “Their (MDA’s) promise on coal also equals zero. Instead, they have given us so many coke plants that are poison to the people. Every decision taken by them is for the sake of money and greed and they have spoiled all of Khasi and Jaintia Hills.”
These supposed failures will spur the people to reject the MDA parties at this year’s Lok Sabha elections (where they are likely to contest individually and not as a united front), Pala added.
