Shillong: Meghalaya’s ruling National People’s Party (NPP) has announced a list of 58 candidates, including at least 10 defectors from parties like the Trinamool Congress and the Congress, for the 60-member state assembly elections that are scheduled to be held this year.
Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma on Thursday declared that the party’s motto, “stronger together,” when the list was made public “He unveiled a report in which it was mentioned regarding the promises made ahead of the 2018 election and the achievements of the NPP-led government.”
According to Sangma, the fact that leaders from other parties have joined the NPP during the past five years shows how much stronger the party is becoming. He went on to say that they joined the party for the broader goal of helping the people rather than for political benefit.
The NPP government, according to Sangma, has secured rapid growth and progress. He added that growth projections have improved, as have Meghalaya’s rankings.
In comparison to the previous 50 years, the NPP-led government has started more development projects in the recent five years. The boundary dispute with Assam, he claimed, can only be resolved by the NPP.
The 2023 elections, which is set to fall in the 51st year of statehood, were deemed crucial by Sangma.”A full majority government will ensure the dreams and aspirations of the people are taken forward.”
