The MDA Govt continues to prove it inadequate in uplifting the state’s in the educational sector: TMC

Shillong, Nov 04: Meghalaya TMC Students’ Union President Bansharailang Pyngrope held a press conference at Meghalaya TMC’s Party Office at Lower Lachumiere, Shillong, on the delay in disbursal of scholarships from the MDA government and Meghalaya’s systemic collapse of the education sector.

Referring to Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma’s earlier statement (27th October, 2022) on the pending state scholarships, the Meghalaya TMC Students’ Union President Bansharailang Pyngrope commented, “The students have reached out to us.

The scholarship promised by the Chief Minister has not been provided even after one week. Many expressed that the SSC would be conducted in December, but instead of focusing on their studies, they have to find ways to fend for their families.

“Expressing his concern, Meghalaya TMC Students’ Union President added, “The Inflation rate is very high but the state’s income level is down. In pen and paper, 15% of the state budget is spent on education but in reality, it is failing.

TMC cannot keep on lying to the residents of the state” He further questioned the MDA government’s capacity in providing scholarships for the students, “10,000 students are eligible for the umbrella scheme.

Where are the pending scholarships?” Considering the reality of the educational system in the state with schools having no electricity, drinking water connections, or even teachers, the MDA government has put our future generation at risk.

According to the news reports of 4th November, 2022, Meghalaya has ranked the second lowest in the latest Performance Grade Index (2020- 21) of the Union Ministry of Education among the states and the Union Territories.

While the MDA government continues to prove it inadequate in uplifting the state’s merit in the educational sector, Meghalaya TMC asks is this how the NPP-led MDA government ensures access to education for all.
