Shillong, Feb 3: The BJP has sought suggestions from the people of Meghalaya for the party’s manifesto.
The BJP has invited people to register their suggestions for the ‘people’s manifesto’ by giving a missed call to 836 000 6060 or by logging on to www.mpowermeghalaya.com. These suggestions will then be collated into the manifesto of the party, said a statement issued on Friday.
It said that the party has launched an aspiration collection drive that is aimed at recording the dreams and wishes of the people of the state so that they may be drafted into a manifesto that the party will release for the upcoming elections.
The BJP wants to address the real issues that the people of Meghalaya face on a day to day basis. And for this the party has given voice to the people.
“It is the general public who experiences and understands the real issues of the state. It is the people who know what they really need. And therefore it is the right of the people to write their own manifesto that will govern them in the coming days,” it added.
Stating that the BJP seeks to develop Meghalaya upwards from the grassroot, the party said it believes that the voice of the last man should be heard first, their issues should be addressed first, they should be empowered first, and that is how the entire state will progress together.
