TURA | February 4, 2020:
The District Youth Congress (DYC) of North Garo Hills has accused the NPP MLAs of attempting to relocate the already apporved Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (JNV) to their respective constituencies.
The DYC has alleged NPP MLAs of Bajengdoba, Ponseng Marak and deputy speaker, Timothy D Shira of political gimmickry.
“On January 29, Pongseng Marak had gone for a site inspection at Raksam Somagre in his constituency, while again on Feb 1, Timothy D Shira, for the fourth instance, gone to Raja Apal (the originally proposed site) for an inspection,” said president of NGH DYC Sengbath Marak in a statement issued today.
The two MLAs had earlier posted about their visit to the locations in their constituency where the JNV is supposed to be constructed leaving many from the opposition Congress camp completely amused.
The DYC questioned the two ‘bickering’ MLAs on the matter and sought to know as where the JNV would actually be housed. They further asked as to whether the two MLAs had taken the people of the two C&RD blocks (Bajengdoba and Resubelpara) for fools.
“Construction tenders have already been floated for the same allotted JNV’s in different parts of Meghalaya whereas conflict of interests and personal, political vendetta of these MLAs are delaying the start of the project. It would be much appreciated if the JNV is housed in Raja Apal area as was proposed by the previous government,” they added.
The DYC sought the two MLAs to initiate construction works of the school and stop depriving the children and citizens of NGH through what they termed as political gimmickry.
