The MPCC Chief said that the Congress does not fight elections based on money but on trust level; which is evident from the candidates and the party’s hard work on the ground.
“It is the first time we have instructed our candidates to go door to door to connect with the people and this will give Congress an upper hand,” he added..
Pala also said that this time the anti-incumbency against the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government is high.
The MPCC president said that one is not going to win elections based on the failures of the government but on the basis of the hard work, the team work.
He also said that the Congress would soon charge-sheet the MDA government and the promises made by it to the people of the state.
“We will expose them and now we are in the process of preparation,” he said.
According to Pala, the Congress is also preparing the road map for the party even as he added that only his party can bring back the old glory of Meghalaya be it in tourism, employment, law and order, farmers and education.
The MPCC chief also said that he agrees with the allegations made by the United Democratic Party, that the government led by the National People’s Party (NPP) are misusing schemes like FOCUS and FOCUS+.
Pala also said that with elections nearing and the coalition partners in the MDA accusing each other, the Congress will have more mileage going into the polls.
“We are working united in the party to fight against the other parties where the alliance partners will fight among themselves and within their respective parties,” he said.
Pala also pointed out that the BJP and alliance partner in the MDA is poaching the NPP MLAs.
