Shillong: National People’s Party president PA Sangma today revived the party’s demand for a separate state for the Garo tribals in Meghalaya and asked electorate to vote for the cause. “I seek your vote for Garoland. I will lead the fight and ensure that Garoland is created,” Sangma, who is pitted against Congress’ Daryl Momin, grandson of Meghalaya’s first Chief Minister Capt W A Sangma for the Tura seat. “The voice of the people is more powerful than grenades or AK guns. Your fight for Garoland by guerrilla movement is not correct. Be a voice for the A’chik and eschew violence. ,” he said.
