Meghalaya Chief Minister and National People’s Party (NPP) Chief Conrad K Sangma has continued his tour in North and East Garo Hills and campaigned in three different locations of Rongrong Abema, Mangsang, and Chibonga as he kicked off his chopper campaign to drum up support for NPP’s Tura candidate Agatha Sangma.

The Meghalaya chief minister reiterated his stand on the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill and said that his party will continue to oppose the Bill.
He added that the NPP is the “party of the Northeast” and lashed out at the Congress party. “The Congress is aware that they are not coming back to power. So they are saying that NPP will partner with BJP. The Congress party is well qualified from the University of lies, so they will continue to lie the people,” he added.
For MP election, the people of Garo Hills have always kept the interest of the tribesmen as the key agenda. This time also, it is not any different. The people of Garo Hills have united to show their solidarity to NPP. pic.twitter.com/naXenq1ZOi

Sangma also countered the alleged ‘misinformation’ campaign of the opposition Congress and added that Meghalaya was the first state in the Northeast to oppose the contentious Bill. Sangma further added: “We took the initiative to unite different political parties of Northeast and made our voice heard in Delhi and ensured that the Bill lapsed in the Rajya Sabha.”
The NPP party will field candidates in all seven states in the Northeast.
