Political parties crippled by in-fighting and landslide defection in poll-bound Meghalaya seem to be in dilemma over what to highlight in their election manifesto.
With just three weeks to go for the ensuing Assembly polls, the political parties of the State are yet to come up with their respective poll manifestoes and other election related documents.
According to insiders in the ruling Congress, the party manifesto for the election will highlight the achievements of the government during the last five-year term and promises to continue the development process if voted to power again.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in its election manifesto is expected to highlight the achievements of the BJP-led Narendra Modi government at the Centre with assurances that similar changes can be ushered in the State if the saffron party grabs power in the upcoming Assembly election.
The National People’s Party (NPP) who had assured to come up with the party vision document for the elections this week failed to do so even till Sunday.
Party sources disclosed it is still in the final stage of preparation.
NPP sources indicated the election manifesto will include among others, economic measures to empower the people in the rural areas of the State.
The United Democratic Party (UDP) and Hill State Peoples Democratic Party (HSPDP) which have pre-poll alliance will project both individual and common issues to be followed up if they are voted to power.
Sources close to the newly formed People’s Democratic Front (PDF) said the party will focus on various initiatives which can bring all-round development in the State.
