Selsella: Meghalaya chief minister Conrad K Sangma on Monday campaigned for the incumbent CEM of GHADC Dipul Marak at Garobadha, Selsella, and Kalchenpara. Marak is seeking reelection from the Rochonpara GHADC constituency.
Terming Dipul as a “hardcore loyalist”, Sangma appealed to electorates to give their mandate to the NPP candidate. “Marak is a hardcore NPP loyalist who has the caliber and leadership quality to work for the grassroots,” said Sangma.
“Dipul Marak had closely worked with our founder leader the late P A Sangma and dedicated himself to the party and the interest of the people. He has been tirelessly working to reform council and he deserves to be re-elected,’ Sangma said, adding that Marak “is an able and disciplined leader who knows his responsibility towards the society.”
Speaking at the rally, Marak on his part sought re-election on the ground that a number of initiatives were taken under his leadership to reform the council, including the abolition of ghost employees.
