All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) general secretary Abhishek Banerjee on January 24 released the party’s manifesto and the 10 pledges for Meghalaya at a function here.
Trinamool Congress leader Mukul Sangma said that the party’s manifesto is “nothing imaginative but completely realistic.”
Sangma went on to say that the state has been robbed of its momentum of growth and development and it is time to free the people from the current dispensation.
He further urged politicians from other parties to join the TMC.
Speaking on the occasion, Banerjee said, “These are pledges not promises. We make a pledge to ensure that they are being implemented to the last person we have promised these.”
The 10 pledges cover health infrastructure which include upgradation of PHCs, CHCs, to improve the State’s economy and ensuring a poverty-free Meghalaya, revoke the Memorandum of Understanding signed between Assam and Meghalaya, to revamp the power sector, to improve sectors like education, sports, tourism.
