Releasing the 21-point manifesto in Khasi, Garo and English, NCP state unit chief Sanbor Shullai said, "On our part we will try our best to fulfil the aspirations of the people by fulfilling promises given in the manifesto."Elaborating more on the manifesto, NCP state general secretary, Constantine N Thma said, "If voted to power, the party would set up an independent vigilance commission to monitor implementation of government funded projects." Thma said, "The party will also work out guidelines for fund utilisation of the MLA local development scheme with special emphasis to underdeveloped areas."
Highlighting another priority area, he said the NCP would protect the environment by introducing scientific coal mining in the state as the present system had been badly affecting the environment.
