Mamata Banerjee in Meghalaya, ‘Remove corrupt proxy BJP govt’

Shillong, Jan 18: Chairperson of the All India Trinamool Congress (AITC), Mamata Banerjee today said only her party can provide better governance to the people of Meghalaya.

Banerjee in her visit to North Garo Hills district was greeted by thousands of people gathered at the Dilma Apal Playground in Mendipathar.

Responding to the thunderous applause and cheers at the venue, the AITC Chairperson said, “I came here to tell you that Trinamool Congress (TMC) is the only party that can give you better governance and help achieve the dreams of the youth, the students, and the women. I give women Lakshmir Bhandar. Here, I will give Rs 1,000 to women in every family.”

During her last visit to the state in December,  Mamata Banerjee launched the revolutionary WE Card Scheme, promising financial assistance to the women of Meghalaya to empower them. The scheme has garnered over 3.50 lakh registrations so far.

Mamata Banerjee’s second visit to the hill state amid an exceptional show of strength sends an electrifying message to the NPP-led MDA government that the people have chosen the Meghalaya TMC. The public excitement was evident when thousands on the Dilma Apal ground started chanting “We Want TMC” in unison during Wednesday’s public meeting.

While listing the failures of the NPP-led MDA government, Mamata Banerjee said, “What has this government done in the past five years? We challenge them to show their report card on what they did in the past five years. Why is it that after so many years, electricity hasn’t reached Meghalaya? Why is the younger generation not getting any employment opportunities?”

Highlighting the dedication of Meghalaya TMC towards the state, she urged people “to empower the people, uphold the culture, celebrate the sacred land of Meghalaya, and remove the proxy BJP government, which is corrupt and hasn’t done anything for the people.”

Thanking the people for their faith in Meghalaya TMC’s vision, AITC National General Secretary Abhishek Banerjee said: “Looking at the love, appreciation, and enthusiasm of the people, I can say that NPP will not be able to win a single assembly seat from Garo.”

Addressing the sea of supporters that arrived in Mendipathar for the party’s public meeting, he added, “This meeting will be the death knell for the corrupt NPP-MDA government.”

AITC National General Secretary Abhishek Banerjee asserted that if voted to power, the people of the soil would run the government in Meghalaya, unlike those leaders who run governments from the ivory towers of Guwahati and Delhi. He also appealed to people to ensure that as the Sun rises in the East, the future of India should also rise from the North Eastern region.
