People of Meghalaya are fed up with state govt: AICC secretary in-charge
Shillong: All India Congress Committee (AICC) secretary in-charge Meghalaya, Manish Chatrath, who is on a 3-day visit to Meghalaya, on Tuesday said following his meeting with the party leaders he has been able to assess that the people are fed up with the government.
During a press briefing held at the Congress Bhawan, Shillong, Chatrath said that he has carried out a meeting with several leaders, officials and office bearers and that it has been a fruitful meeting.
He lauded the party leaders for doing their jobs well during the past 10 months during the pandemic. “The way they served the people of the state was well appreciated and thanked them for that. I will be visiting the state more often,” said Chatrath.
“One important assessment received from most leaders is that the people are fed up with the present government. What was promised to the people has not been fulfilled by the government," he added.
According to Chatrath, no political party has worked like them (Congress) in these past 10 months.
Following the press conference, EastMojo asked Chatrath if the pandemic was the only flaw they saw in the ruling government, to which Chatrath responded, “There are many issues- like the jobs have not been given as promised. So many of the posts lie vacant. Even illegal coal mining is one of the major issues.”
Concerning Congress unable to make its mark, Chatrath said, “If people were fed up with Congress we wouldn’t have got 21 seats. We will reorganise ourselves, give tickets to good candidates, and it should be well.”
He further added that he was meeting the party members, leaders’ and officials, so the idea and suggestion have to come from them. “Whatever they suggest we will implement that only since they are the face of Congress in the state,” said Chatrath.
