Meghalaya Chief Minister and National People’s Party (NPP) Chief Conrad K. Sangma today exuded confidence for a landslide victory in the upcoming Meghalaya Assembly elections and forming a single majority government.

Amid the rival parties’ campaigns that have centred on mudslinging and negativity against the NPP-led MDA government, CM Conrad Sangma has kept his campaigns clear of blame games and emphasised the peace and development the NPP government brought to the State’s citizens over the past five years, putting the needs and aspirations of the people first.

CM Sangma today campaigned for Timothy D Shira in the Resubelpara constituency and Marthon Sangma in the Mendipathar seat under North Garo Hills.

During his campaign he highlighted that NPP has grown stronger over the past five years while all of its rivals have only weakened and that shows the faith of the people in his party because of this, he is confident that his party securing a landslide victory in the upcoming Meghalaya Assembly polls, enabling the party to form a single-party government, making it only the second instance in the history of Meghalaya to happen; the 1st instance was in 1972 when APHLC won 32 seats.

Addressing the public at the Daram playground in Resubelpara constituency, CM Conrad Sangma urged the people to come together to vote for a party that cares for Meghalaya. “NPP has fulfilled the promises made in 2018 and remains committed to further initiate development and welfare. For NPP, the people’s concerns come first,” the NPP Chief said.

He noted that Congress had inroads in the region but it has become redundant after their leaders shifted to the Trinamool Congress (TMC). “Today Congress and TMC are campaigning to popularise their parties, but going by their campaign trail, they have miserably failed,” he said.

He further said, “Our assessment from across the State is clear as people are coming out in large numbers to pledge their support to NPP. People of Garo Hills have been able to live in peace for the last five years. There has been no law and order situation. There was no instance of kidnapping and extortion in the region compared to previous years. People have led a peaceful life. Now, we have to consider which party can continue to ensure peace in the State and consider to vote for NPP.”

“People of Garo Hills should never allow any other political party, and continue to support and strengthen NPP as people’s mandate will only ensure that NPP continues to further the interest of our people and ensure concerted development,” he added.
