2023 elections: Congress eyes all 4 seats in NGH

RESUBELPARA, Nov 26: With 2023 Assembly elections around the corner, the Congress now hopes to take back the seats in North Garo Hills, which it considers its old bastion.
A week after state Congress president Vincent H Pala exuded confidence over Congress’ return to power in 2022, an executive meeting was organised in Resubelpara by the North Garo Hills District Youth Congress on Friday in a bid to bolster the party prospects in the upcoming elections.
The meeting, which was attended by around 500 Youth Congress workers and Indian Youth Congress national secretary Nur Sofiqul Wazid as the chief guest, also saw the induction of new office-bearers for all constituencies.
Speaking during the meeting, district president of Youth Congress Timjim Momin informed the gathering that the push, which was kick-started earlier to win all four seats in North Garo Hills, would intensify in the days to come.
It may be mentioned there are four constituencies in North Garo Hills, viz. Kharkutta, Bajengdoba, Mendipathar and Resubelpara.
“The Congress will always have grassroots support and we, as party members, will continue to pull people in our fold to ensure development becomes the talk of the state, instead of law and order and corruption,” said Timjim, who himself is an aspiring candidate from Mendipathar constituency, while taking a jibe at the NPP-led Meghalaya Democratic Alliance.
Maintaining that the party would do well in North Garo Hills as it has always been a Congress bastion, he said, “North Garo Hills is a Congress bastion. People of the region are still with the grand old party and we expect to perform well in all the four constituencies of the region.”
Last week, the state Congress president had maintained that the party will come back to power and lead the government after the 2023 elections.
He had also said that after receiving feedback on the performance of Congress in Garo Hills, the party has high hopes of returning back to power.
The 2023 Assembly elections will give the Congress an opportunity to regain the lost ground.
