Meghalaya isn’t governed from this place but from Delhi, according to Rahul Gandhi
Rahul entered Meghalaya via the Morigaon side of Assam after being denied permission to proceed towards a shrine in Nagaon.
On Monday, senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi stated that governance in Meghalaya originates from Delhi, not within the state.
Rahul addressed a gathering during his ongoing Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, which recommenced from Meghalaya’s Ri Bhoi on Monday evening.
Rahul entered Meghalaya from the Morigaon side of Assam after being denied permission to proceed to a shrine in Nagaon.
Taking aim at Union Home Minister Amit Shah for labeling the then Meghalaya government as the most corrupt, Rahul highlighted that Shah, soon after making the statement, formed an alliance with the same government under Chief Minister Conrad Sangma following the Meghalaya general elections.
Speaking at the Madan Pahamsyiem mini stadium in Nongpoh, the capital of Ri-Bhoi district, Rahul stated, “Meghalaya is governed not from this place but from Delhi, which is unacceptable. The nation is grappling with the highest unemployment levels in the past 40 years. The Home Minister labeled the Meghalaya government as the most corrupt in the country. Shortly after that, he formed an alliance with the same government…”
Rahul emphasized Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s lack of response to the Manipur issue.
Expressing deep concern, Rahul remarked, “The silence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding the Manipur clash, which resulted in the loss of numerous lives and the displacement of thousands due to ethnic conflict, is alarming. The BJP does not appear committed to resolving this matter.”
The conflict between the Kukis and Meiteis began on May 3 during a demonstration against a court-mandated adjustment to the state’s reservation system, which conferred Scheduled Tribe (ST) status to the latter.
