SHILLONG, June 16: The Meghalaya Pradesh Youth Congress (MPYC) on Thursday condemned Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s questioning by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with the National Herald money laundering case.
Briefing media persons here on Thursday, MPYC president Adrian Chyne Mylliem accused the central government of using the ED to quiz Gandhi to distract the public from the pressing issues.
He also launched a scathing attack on the state government over various issues, including inflation.
Mylliem said that while the prices of essential commodities and LPG continue to skyrocket, no relief measure is being initiated by the government.
The MPYC president also said that the state government is getting richer while the public is getting poorer as the former is motivated by self-interest.
With regard to the protest by the Mawmluh Cherra Cements Limited (MCCL) factory employees, he demanded that the issues should be immediately addressed.
With regard to the plight of ASHA workers, he lamented that despite their untiring efforts, they continue to remain underpaid.
Mylliem also said that the condition of the midday meal workers in the state is no different.
“Government is not spending money to boost income of the people. Whatever the government is doing is to benefit only a few but not the public,” he added.
