However, our intent had been diluted and suppressed. All our efforts have been negated by some leaders in INC. Our commitment remains to protect people. That is the reason we looked for a new party, with a new symbol, which can give us that platform.” He further added.

“TMC is on one side, and all the other parties are on the other side.”

Meghalaya TMC whole heartedly welcomes Willy D Shira into the family fold and hopes to work in complete collaboration with the grassroots leaders to make a positive impact in the state.
