AITC calls CM Conrad Sangma ‘puppet’ appointed by Delhi


All India Trinamool Congress Meghalaya Parliamentary Party Chief Dr. Mukul Sangma on Friday slammed Chief Minister Conrad Sangma and called him a puppet appointed by Delhi.

Addressing a gathering at Mawshynrut, West Khasi Hills, Dr Sangma said, “The NPP-led MDA government has been formed by PM Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah and CM Conrad Sangma is merely a puppet appointed by Delhi.”

He further stated that prior to 2018, NPP claimed they would not go with BJP.

“However we can see what happened after the elections. HSPDP, UDP, KHNAM also claimed that they would not stand by the BJP government but they all changed their stance. This is merely a repetition of their trickery,” he added.

Meghalaya TMC formed a block committee in Mawshynrut, West Khasi Hills, to connect more and more people at the grassroots level all across the state. The meeting was held in the presence of TMC senior party leader Dr. Mukul Sangma and TMC leader from Mawshynrut Justin G Momin along with other party members. A large number of people attended Friday’s rally.

During the rally, Dr. Sangma raised the border agreement issue as he questioned the intent of the MDA government.

Addressing the people, Dr. Mukul Sangma said, “Everyone knows how Home Minister Amit Shah came and pursued Chief Minister Conrad Sangma for the border deal, and within a month he signed the border agreement with Assam.”

“Now, NPP is saying they’ll scrap the alliance with BJP and contest alone in the upcoming 2023 elections. These divisive forces from outside came in and formed an unholy alliance. They promised something before the elections, but did they keep their promises? This shows that this is a govt that cannot be trusted by the people of the state. Meghalaya and all it’s people will vote for change in the coming year,” the former CM added.

Further, attacking the NPP-led MDA government over ineffective and poor governance, Dr. Sangma added, “This is our democracy and we must work together to safeguard the interests of our people, our tribes, our culture, our kids, and for our coming generations. The current proxy-BJP government is inefficient in preserving the uniqueness of our identity. They are wasting all our resources. I want to ask, why the sitting MLA hasn’t brought any formidable change in the constituency during his tenure? It’s not too late before the people will give them a befitting answer.”

TMC leader, Justin G Momin lambasting the current NPP MLA Gigur Myrthong over no development said, “Just go around the constituency and you’ll witness that there’s been no development whatsoever. If you see the health index, it has gone down all across the state, especially in this constituency. Despite the fact that this constituency shares its border with Assam, there’s no livelihood nor enough jobs. The government failed to leverage the connectivity this area shares with the neighboring state.”
