NONGSTOIN/ SHILLONG: Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma on Tuesday said that the National People’s Party (NPP) has ensured that the government was ‘pro-people’ and was pushing the agenda for equitable development in the State.
“We don’t have any extraordinary intelligence. If there is anything extra ordinary it is our will and commitment and our desire to work.”
“We don’t have big brains but a big heart and it is in our sheer commitment and love for the people that pushes us to work,” the chief minister said at a felicitation programme held at Nongpyndeng Presbyterian Church in Nongstoin, West Khasi Hills.
Assuring that the current MDA government is a ‘people’s government’, he said, “Because our commitment is there for the people, our MLAs from different parts of the state is keeping us abreast with issues and concern of the people.”
Acknowledging the fact that West Khasi Hills requires a lot of development, especially road connectivity, Sangma said, “Our government has the desire to improve infrastructure in the district as well as ensure equal development in all other districts of Meghalaya. We want the state to grow in all areas of development.”
He told the gathering comprising of religious leaders, church organisations, Non-Government Organisations, civil society and the public that the government has charted out different development projects for the district, especially roads.
“We have representation of MLAs from all districts of the state except South West Khasi Hills and we are confident that after the by-election in Ranikor, we will add one more MLA in the MDA government, and will work to fulfill the aspirations of the people,” he added.
He further stated that NPP as a political party is standing up for the Christians and other religious minorities in the country.
