MP Derek O’Brien addressing a press conference in Jowai on Tuesday


Expressing confidence in the love and support of people for Meghalaya Trinamool Congress (TMC) witnessed during his visit to Jowai, TMC MP and Leader of AITC Parliamentary Party, Rajya Sabha, Derek O’Brien said once voted to power, Meghalaya TMC would ensure that all the promises mentioned in the manifesto are implemented within 100 days.

“After our Jowai candidate Andrew Shullai becomes MLA and Meghalaya TMC forms the government in the state, we will deliver on our promises within 100 days,” said MP Derek O’Brien while addressing a press conference in Jowai.

Dismissing negative propaganda against Meghalaya TMC’s revolutionary schemes – WE Card and MYE Card – which have collectively received nearly 8 lakh registrations, the TMC parliamentarian said, “When some people get elected as MLA, they become salespersons. However, through these schemes, we are giving back what belongs to the people.”

The TMC leader also stressed that education, health, employment, and road infrastructure are the basic requirements of people. “Money cannot win you hearts and minds. We believe we have the best candidate to serve the people of Jowai. The people of Jowai, and across Meghalaya, have made up their minds that they want a change,” he said.

Earlier in the day, MP Derek O’Brien along with Meghalaya TMC candidate from Jowai, Andrew Shullai, addressed a public meeting in Iawmusiang Market, where they elaborated on TMC Meghalaya’s vision for Jowai.
