Starting her interaction with the media of the state, Sitharaman said, “its the time for a change in Meghalaya and its time for BJP, the party is bringing this change via its Vision Document.”
Adding to this, she stated, “the party is working on the national message of the PM, ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikaas’ for an all over development of each and every person of the country.”
During this, Sitharaman targeting the ruling Congress government in the state for past 10 years said that these 10 years was a golden period of the party as the same party was in power at the centre as well.
“If the party which has been in power in the state for 10 years, a substantial part of these 10 years was the same party ruling in Delhi, you would think the aspirations of the people of Meghalaya will be addressed. But we don’t find it today, hence there is a need for a change in Meghalaya,” Sitharaman stated.
