Dubbing the ruling Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government as “incompetent”,  the Leader of Opposition, Mukul Sangma said that there has been sudden fall of development in the state. 

“Contractors have stopped their works because their dues have not been released. Even for centrally sponsored schemes, they have not been able to submit utilization certificates against the money released by the Central government,” the former Chief Minister told reporters. 

The veteran Congress leader added: “even people from other parties have admitted that development process in the state has come to a standstill.” 

Terming the MDA as the most ‘incompetent’ government led by an ‘incompetent’ chief minister, he said, “People now are saying we have a Facebook chief minister, who led an incompetent government. This is the narrative of the common people and not my version.” Exuding confidence that the people of Shella Assembly constituency will elect Congress candidate Batyngshaiñ Ryngnga in the bypolls, Mukul said because leaders and parties associated with the present government are indulging in hollow promises.

“People want the momentum of development that has been witnessed in the preceding years and the benchmark that has been set in respect of the quantum of investment for diverse developmental initiatives,” he said adding that there has been sudden fall of development in the state. 

“This is the concern of the people and based on this, these are issues which are being part of the political discourse in this bye election,” Sangma said.

On late Donkupar Roy’s role in Shella constituency, Sangma said, “Roy got long innings and opportunities since 1988. But if you visit the constituency and look at the privileges and opportunities that he had been vested with to respond to the expectations and aspirations of the people, I feel people have reasons to grumble,” he said.
