BJP leader and Tura MDC Bernard N Marak opined that Meghalaya needs Modi's double-engine government to take the state to a new height.
In a statement issued on Sunday, Marak said, “Every five years, legislators talk about development placing huge figures on their annual budgets but in reality, all visible development on the ground are schemes and projects sponsored by the Central government under the leadership of Narendra Modi.”
He said Modi's double-engine government is the need of the hour in the state as it would change the whole scenario of the state.
“Centre approved and funded projects for infrastructure, road, education, health, water and multiple schemes launched to uplift the poor in the state but no acknowledgement was given to the Centre government,” he said.
According to him, most of the foundation stones never mentioned about the ministry from which the fund was sanctioned.
“Even the banners and hoardings which are put up everywhere in the state highlighted centrally sponsored projects and schemes but nowhere Prime Minister Narendra Modi's picture was put up with credit and acknowledgement,” he said.
He also said that PMGSY, PMAY, JJM, MHIS, PM Kisan, Swatch Bharat and many other schemes which have transformed the state are all Centrally sponsored.
