Abhishek says NPP will draw blank in GH

Shillong, Feb 15: AITC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee had said the National People’s Party (NPP) will draw a blank from Garo Hills and the chief minister Conrad K Sangma will lose his seat.

“I have categorically said that NPP will draw a blank from Garo Hills, which has 24 seats. Conrad Sangma is losing his own seat. Six months back, they said Trinamool Congress has no base here. But now, if you look at their speeches, tweets, and statements, you will see that their day begins and ends with attacks on TMC. This shows how bewildered and rattled they are,” Abhishek said.


He was addressing a meeting in South Tura on Wednesday.

According to Abhishek, while crossing the offices of the district collectorate, treasury office, the DIG office, and Tura police station, he noticed that these stretches were covered in darkness. There was no streetlight on either side of the road

“If the Chief Minister cannot bring light to his own constituency, how can he bring development to the state?” he asked.

“From hospitals to schools and colleges, everything is in shambles. Shillong Medical College exists only on paper. Tura medical college is also in the doldrums. Bengal has 23 medical colleges, of which 16 are government medical colleges and the remaining are private medical colleges. Bengal also has 23 districts. Shouldn’t Meghalaya have 12 colleges as against its 12 districts? But there isn’t even one medical college. This is the result of the double-engine government”, he said.

He expressed anguish over the incident of Mukroh. Three months have passed since the Mukroh firing incident but there was no action against the officers who fired at innocent people. Were they called for investigation or arrested? he asked.

“Isn’t it the Chief Minister’s responsibility to act when innocent people are being fired upon? The CM should have resigned for failing to take any action,” he said.

He said action will be taken against the officers involved in the incident once the AITC is elected to power.
