NPP is the only party to have championed the cause of Christians and Tribals: Meghalaya CM Sangma

Sangma's NPP is contesting in 9 seats for the upcoming assembly elections in Mizoram.

Chief Minister of Meghalaya and President of National People’s Party, Conrad K Sangma, addressed election rallies at Vairengte and Kolasib in poll-bound Mizoram on Wednesday. As per reports, speaking at the rallies Sangma claimed that the NPP is the only party that has championed the cause of the tribals and Christians.

Sangma was there to campaign for the NPP candidates Hmingchungnunga and John Lalremruata, who are contesting from Serlui and Kolasib constituency respectively.

“We are a party for the tribals and are working hard to restore our identity as one voice from the Northeast. There is a need for all the tribals of the region to come together in a single platform under the banner of NPP to make themselves recognised and be heard in the corridor of power,” he said.

Sangma said that the party has grown rapidly since its formation in 2012 and has emerged as a major political force from the Northeast. The party is in power in four States of Meghalaya, Manipur, Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh.

“NPP is getting such response because people have restored their faith in us. People believe in us. They are aware that NPP is really concerned to help the people of the Northeast. With God’s grace, we are emerging as one of the biggest party of the Northeast. If we look at political scenario Congress party is ruling only in two State, whereas NPP being a new party in four states of the Northeast,” he said. Sangma met people of Serlui constituency in different areas and also inaugurated the NPP’s information center for the ensuing election at Pualpui.

“We have made a humble beginning in Mizoram and we want to continue our mission and serve the people of the state. NPP will remain committed for the tribals and will always work for the all-round development of the region. PA Sangma had the vision for Northeast and this platform was created for the people of the region to be heard and respected,” he stressed. The NPP is contesting for 9 seats in Mizoram.

Sangma said that he travels by road during his campaigns to understand the region better. “Unlike other leaders of different political parties, I choose to campaign by traveling on the roads. By this, I have understood the region better and their problems. Mizoram has remained neglected. It is high time that people become assertive and vote for a party willing to take the State to its new height,” he added.
