The state vice-president of the Trinamool Congress (TMC) George B. Lyngdoh, on December 28, said that TMC is the only party in Meghalaya opposing all the wrong policies of the National People’s Party (NPP) led Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government.
Speaking at a block level meeting in Mawngap, under Mawphlang constituency in East Khasi Hills district, Lyngdoh said that the rising cost of fuel has sky-rocketed the price of essential commodities in the state.
The TMC state vice-president said that the people of the state get a chance only once in five years to decide their future and it should be used wisely.
“During elections people get excited and vote for the wrong person and they suffer for the next five years,” Lyngdoh said.
He said that for the past many years the voters have been electing the wrong candidates but this time around the TMC has come to show the people of Meghalaya the right path.
Lyngdoh said that the TMC will carve a new path wherein the government will be installed by the people who will know the policies the new government will bring and the seeds that will be sown now the public will know what kind of fruits will be harvested.
The TMC vice-president said that in the past the governments had made various promises who are never fulfilled in the five years.
He also said that the TMC will put up candidates who are well qualified and who are untainted.
Lyngdoh also said that it is only the TMC which is standing up against the might of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) not only in the state but all over the country.
He also hit out at the MDA government by saying that the policies of the state are being dictated by the central government.
The TMC state vice-president said that the non-payment of salaries and unemployment for the youths are major issues afflicting the state.
Lyngdoh said that the state government is not being able to fill up 8000 government jobs leave alone create new ones.
