All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee on Thursday asked the people to not just vote to elect but to "reject, protest and punish the corrupt BJP-NPP leaders for betraying Meghalaya".
Abhishek was addressing public meetings at Ampati and Williamnagar in Meghalaya.
Commenting on the five years of the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government and its "corrupt practices", the AITC leader urged the people of the state to teach them a lesson on February 27.
“This is not just a vote to elect. It is a vote to reject, protest, and punish the culprits. It is a vote to hold perpetrators to the book for selling their spines to those sitting in Delhi and for playing with people’s love and faith,” he said.
The AITC national general secretary has been visiting the remotest corners to interact with the people and share the Meghalaya TMC’s vision incorporated in TMC’s 10 pledges for Meghalaya.
Reiterating his pledge and commitment to the state, Abhishek Banerjee also assured that if voted to power, the Meghalaya TMC would ensure that their flagship initiatives – WE Card and MYE Card Scheme – are implemented within the first month of coming to power.
“The results will be declared on March 2 and it is my commitment that within April 2, the woman member of every household will get Rs 1,000 per month (Rs 12,000 annually)….I give my word that within one month of forming the government, the unemployed youth will receive Rs 1,000 per month in their bank accounts (Rs 12,000 annually),” he promised, amid thundering applauses from the crowd.
