Addressing the people over the need for good governance in the state, Adolf Lu Marak, who is also a former three-time MLA said: “Nothing is as important as our land, and our lands are being taken away. That is why we should seek a leader who will work for the truth, justice, and for the welfare of the people. We should support such leaders. As for me, I believe in such leadership so let’s all be together and support those who can bring back our land which has been taken away from us.”
Furthermore attacking the Conrad-led MDA government over the Assam-Meghalaya border dispute, Marak said: “Before signing the MoU, you have to know whom this land belongs to.”
Marak emphasized that the people of Meghalaya are fed up with the MDA government and are looking for an alternative in the coming assembly elections.
David Ch Marak on joining the party fold said: “I have joined because our state, currently, does not have quality leadership to bring in socio-economic development. So, as part of the Trinamool Congress, I want to contribute to developing Garo Hills. In comparison to other states, Meghalaya is developing at an extremely slow pace and in a disproportionate manner.”
