Leader of Opposition and AITC leader Dr Mukul Sangma, on Tuesday, accused the NPP-led Meghalaya Democratic Alliance government of using the Integrated Basin Development and Livelihood Promotion (IBDLP) programme for their “greed” as he referred to the irregularities highlighted in the media reports.

Referring to shocking revelations in the media about the Integrated Basin Development and Livelihood Promotion programme under the current dispensation, Trinamool Congress Legislature Party Leader & Leader of Opposition, Meghalaya Legislative Assembly, Dr. Mukul Sangma commented, “The MDA government tried their level best to demonize the Basin Development Programme. The irony is that the MDA government could not carry forward the programme. With the number of irregularities reflected in the media reports, I was shocked to realise that they had started to use the Basin Development Programme for their greed. Those media reports are disturbing!”

He was addressing a block committee meeting of the All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) held at Mawryngkneng.

Taking a dig at MDA’s misconstrued projection about the Jal Jeevan Mission project for electoral gains, Trinamool Congress Legislature Party Leader & Leader of Opposition, Meghalaya Legislative Assembly, Dr. Mukul Sangma commented, “I was questioned how did the government receive the best performer award for JJM? Maybe the MDA government has started lying to the Government of India as well. Each time before the elections, the MDA government makes it a habit to lie to the people for electoral gains.”

In a major boost to Meghalaya TMC in the East Khasi Hills, a Block Committee Meeting  held at Mawryngkneng where a large number of people turn out for the meeting.

Those present in the meeting were TMC state president Charles Pyngrope, Umroi MLA George B Lyngdoh, TMC leaders – James Lyngdoh, Banshanlang Lawai, union president Bansharailang Pyngrope, youth president Fernandez S Dkhar and others.

The party said that with growing support from people, Meghalaya TMC continues to strengthen its base with an unflinching focus on mass outreach. While the NPP-led MDA government chooses to focus on retaining power through a variety of ill schemes, Meghalaya TMC pledges to stand by the people and fulfill their demands as their topmost priority, it said.
