“It is no point in supporting TMC or any other parties. NPP is set to form the Government.

Sangma, who is also the incumbent legislator from the constituency. 

SHILLONG:

National People’s Party (NPP) chief Conrad K Sangma, on February 24, made a clarion call to members of other political parties including the TMC to join NPP and pledge their support.

“It is no point in supporting TMC or any other parties. NPP is set to form the Government. Let us not waste our vote and come out to vote and pledge support for NPP,” he said while addressing a massive crowd at Dadenggre, where he campaigned for his elder brother and party candidate James P.K. Sangma, who is also the incumbent legislator from the constituency.

Terming TMC leader and former Chief Minister Dr Mukul Sangma as a dictatorial leader, he said, “He (Mukul) may have joined TMC but he is the same person, who has killed innocent civilians. Garo Hills will never forget the September 30 incident, where nine lives were lost.”

Terming his brother James Sangma as a committed leader, who has not only worked for his constituency but the entire State, Conrad thanked the people of the Dadenggre constituency for reposing their faith in him.

“James Sangma has initiated the construction of the new of Rongram – Dadenngre and Phulbari road which remained neglected for ages at a sanction cost of Rs. 80 cr plus,” Conrad said.

He also told the gathering that if voted to power, the popular demand for creation of a new district with Dadenggre as headquarters will be the priority of the Govt.

Speaking on the occasion, James Sangma thanked the people of Dadenggre for turning up in large numbers to welcome NPP national president Conrad K Sangma.

The highlight of the rally was the speech by Conrad and James Sangma’s mother Soradini K Sangma who urged the people of Dadenggre to vote for her son. She told the gathering that people of Garo Hills have done so much for their family that her late husband has given the task to his children to work for the people of Garo Hills.

At Williamnagar, the NPP chief said that sitting legislator Marcuise Marak has ensured a turnaround of Williamnagar town by initiating and engaging with the Govt for various development works.

He said that there are several ongoing construction and improvement of road projects in the town, construction of new college building, Williamnagar Water Supply project to name a few.

“Previous Govt did not give any support to Williamnagar College but NPP led Govt sanctioned Rs. 12 cr to ensure completion of the new college building,” he said.

He further castigated the previous Government on the use of guns and force to scare people. “Civil bodies and groups continue to protest to show their anger against Govt but we as Govt have not resorted to using force to oppose them. We believe in engaging dialogue with protesting organisation rather than using guns and force,” he reiterated.

“We as a Govt respect the sentiment of the people and have decided on occasion as per the popular aspiration of our citizens. We believe in seeking public opinion in the decision we take,” he asserted.

Later, he also addressed a rally at Phulbari for party candidate and previous power minister A T Mondal.

The election meeting witnessed a turnout of more than 10,000 people.
