‘Change Scandalous Government’, Mamata tells voters in Meghalaya


Trinamool Congress (TMC) chairperson and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday urged the electorate of poll-bound Meghalaya to “change the scandalous government” and install her party in power. Addressing an election meeting at Nekikona Tilapara ground in Rajabali, Garo Hills today, she said, “Delhi-based BJP and Congress can never be your friends. They were in power for so many years but could not even build roads in Meghalaya. Trinamool Congress is the party that works for the people…Change this government which has been in power for the past five years. Nothing was done [by the government]. No medical colleges, no good roads, and no system for healthcare facilities were developed. There was no development but only scandals. Change this scandalous government”.
She also lashed the Congress for failing to fulfil their duties as Opposition leaders.
“Congress is asking for votes but where is their moral right? I was in Congress but they expelled us from the party. We are fighting the battle against BJP and every day BJP is knocking at our doors with ED-CBI,” Banerjee said.
Urging the electorate of Meghalaya to choose leaders “from the soil”, Banerjee said, “Outsiders want to rule here while oppressing you with NRC, CAA, bullets, and scandals. We too won’t run it from Bengal”.
The Bengal CM said, “Our biggest identity is that we are humans and love humanity. We respect all religions. No religion is bigger than the religion of humanity”.
Promising “political medicine” for the BJP, Banerjee said, “Ensure victory for TMC in the state as we are the ones who will remove BJP from Delhi in the coming days. Cast your vote in favour of the TMC and tomorrow we will show the way on how to remove BJP from the country. Vote for TMC and we will defeat BJP in the 2024 elections. This is our commitment”.
TMC General secretary, Abhishek Banerjee, who shared the dias with his aunt, promised that the TMC would implement the ‘WE Card’ scheme within one month, if given the mandate to rule Meghalaya.
“Women members of every household will get Rs 1,000 per month in their bank accounts,” Abhishek wooed the voters.
