Launching the BJP’s election campaign christened, “Rally for Change” in Polo Grounds here in Meghalaya, Modi accused the ruling Congress-led Meghalaya United Alliance government for not serving the interest of the people but belongs only to the “mining mafia.”

He said the State would have been the leader among developed states if the focus of the State Government was good governance.
