SHILLONG: The Meghalaya Right to Information Movement (MRTIM) on Monday wanted Meghalaya, plagued by scams, to learn from the victory of Aam Admi Party (AAP) which was all out against corruption.

Congratulating “its comrade”, Arvind Kejriwal for the victory of AAP in Delhi, the Meghalaya Right to Information Movement on Sunday said,” Meghalaya which is plagued by umpteen scams, need to take a leaf out of this win and refrain from its habitual cynicism against people’s movements but rather resolve to bring in systemic and lasting changes”.

AAP has exhibited that rooting out corruption is very much central to every citizen and that an alternate politics is needed and is possible, said Angela Rangad and Michael Syiem on behalf of the Movement.

“Arvind, who was referred to as ‘Bah Erwin’ on his two visits to Shillong – to aid the RTI campaign here way back in 2004 and in 2014 when he attended the National RTI Convention in Shillong – literally took Delhi by storm and defeated seasoned politicians”, the Movement said.
