BJP leader and Tura MDC Bernard N Marak on Sunday said Meghalaya needs Modi’s double engine government to take the state to a new height.
In a statement, Marak said, “Every 5 years, lagislators talk about development placing huge figures on their annual budgets but in reality, all visible development on the ground are schemes and projects sponsored by the centre government under the leadership of Narendra Modi.”
He said Modi’s double engine goverment is the need of an hour in the state as it would change the whole scenerio of the state.
“Centre approved and funded projects for infrastructure, road, education, health, water and multiple schemes launched to uplift the poor in the state but no acknowledgement was given to the Centre government,” he said.
According to him, most of the foundation stones never mentioned about the Ministry from which the fund was sanctioned.
“Even the banners and hoardings which are put up everywhere in the state highlighted Centrally sponsored projects and schemes but nowhere Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s picture was put up with credit and acknowledgement,” he said.
Marak further alleged that some state leaders even went to an extend of shamelessly putting up their own pictures with public money taking credit and advantage of the centrally sponsored schemes and projects.
He said the state leaders also took credit for all flagship programs which were sponsored by Centre government.
PMGSY, PMAY, JJM, MHIS, PM Kisan, Swatch Bharat and many other schemes which has transformed the state are all centrally sponsored.
He alleged BJP gave so much to the state but leaders of the state looted most of it which can be justified only with BJP in the State.
