NPP has become National Puppet's Party: AITC national GS

SHILLONG, JAN 24: Opposition AITC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee on Tuesday asked the Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma to concentrate on his election campaigns.

He said it was unbecoming of a chief minister to listen to market rumours and say that leaders of the AITC are already planning to desert the party once elections are over.

“If you are only talking bad about the people of the state, you’re ending up belittling the people of Meghalaya, you’re ending up deliberating the people of the state, you’re ending up trash talking about your own colleagues that is extremely unbecoming of a chief minister.”

“I can only tell him (CM) to concentrate on his campaign as now NPP is no more National People’s Party it has become National Puppet’s Party and it is only a matter of time that this My Development Alliance government is ousted and a true government which will work towards the all-round development of a state is established,” Abhishek said.

He further alleged the chief minister of being perplexed, bewildered and scared ahead of the assembly polls.

The AITC leader also slammed the NPP for terming the We Card and MYE Card scheme as “baaki cards”.

He said that these are not promises but pledges that the AITC will do in Meghalaya.

“When we released the manifesto before the Bengal elections, the chairperson of the party was only promising to give one woman in every household. After coming to power in three months, she has made sure that every woman in the state is covered under the scheme.”

“One woman in every household will get Rs 1,000 monthly and Rs 12,000 annually and it will be the first decision that cabinet will take and it will not even take 100 days it will be executed within the first two weeks of forming the government I can assure you that,” he assured
