SHILLONG, April 22: The State BJP on Monday stated that the Lok Sabha election for the two seats in Meghalaya was fought on the agenda of “unfounded fears of the people” and not genuine issues. The party also lamented that most of the candidates did not even bring out an election manifesto before seeking votes.
“Most of the candidates did not even have an election manifesto. They do not have a vision of what they are going to do for the people in the next five years if they are elected,” BJP vice president and Tura MDC Bernard N Marak said.
“Most of the candidates did not talk about what they will do after the elections. It is sad that our leaders are not visionary and don’t have any commitment towards the people,” he said.
He also questioned the candidates for attempting to scare the people by talking about laws that are not even applicable in Meghalaya like the CAA and One Nation, One election.
“They spoke about the Uniform Civil Code under which the matrilineal system in the state will be abolished. They forgot that we are protected under the Sixth Schedule,” he stated.
