Mukul gets black flag welcome at Dadenggre

TURA: Chief Minister Mukul Sangma had to face a similar embarrassment as that of his bête noire P.A. Sangma at the very same venue in Dadenggre when he went to address a public rally in support of party candidate for Jengjal and outgoing GHADC chairman Purno K Sangma on Friday afternoon.
As the chief minister arrived at Dadenggre at around 2:30 pm to address Congress supporters at the public playground, members of five Garo NGOs gathered their supporters and began a silent procession from the market site towards the field carrying black flags, wearing black scarves and holding placards with questions about what happened to his promise to make Dadenggre a PWD sub-division.
“On August 22nd 2011, the chief minister had promised the people that Dadenggre would be made a PWD sub-division but even after four long years that has not turned into reality. Our protest was to remind the chief minister of his unfulfilled promise,” said GSU western zone leader Rupa Marak who along with leaders and volunteers of GSU, FKJGP, ADE, FAF and AYWO took part in the protest sit-in.
Marak added that the protest turnout on Friday was much larger than the previous one against P.A. Sangma.
