TURA, Feb 14: Enumerating the interventions of his government, Chief Minister, Dr. Mukul Sangma said that he has raised the bar for the next government to be formed in Meghalaya.
Dr. Sangma had made this statement at Babadam in the outskirts of Tura town where he was campaigning for sitting Congress legislator Noverfield R. Marak.
“Any other government after me will have to follow suit otherwise they will be pulled down by the people”, Dr. Sangma had said.
Looking back at the term of the outgoing government, Dr. Sangma said, “We gave a stable government minus the regional parties. We delivered on our promises despite challenges and beyond to accelerate the momentum of growth in the state. From PWD roads to locality roads in towns and villages, we gave each a priority.”
The efforts of the government to bring in a medical college in Tura and the College for Architecture and Urban Planning near Tura also found mention in Dr. Sangma’s speech.
Dr. Sangma also expressed his concern over the unstable political scenario in Meghalaya and said that under this atmosphere, there is a risk of derailment of projects. “Whenever we have initiated developmental projects the next government always strikes it. Every project cannot be completed in five years,” he said.
