Itanagar: Meghalaya Chief Minister and National People’s Party Chief Conrad K Sangma along with Cabinet Minister James Sangma, Tipra Motha chief Pradyot Bikram Debbarma, Assam Jatiya Parishad president Lurinjyoti Gogoi and several others attended the National People’s Party’s conclave at Itanagar in Arunachal Pradesh on Tuesday.
Addressing the event, Sangma spoke about the importance of making Northeast India a strong economic zone.
“At least fifty per cent of our issues are related to the economy. In the coming times, we have to plan an economic agenda. The political agenda is in place. We will of course have a political agenda as we are a political party and there is nothing to shy away from it. But we do not do everything only for politics. Politics provides us with a stage for the welfare of the state and public but being connected with the public and getting ideas from diverse areas is important,” the Meghalaya CM said.
The NPP chief also spoke about the importance of making Northeast India a strong economic zone.
“We need to realize that if Northeast India can become one strong economic zone where there is inter-trade between us. I have discussed it with the Prime Minister as well and to find out ways to increase the inter-trade between states like Nagaland, Manipur, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh and this is something to think about,” Sangma added.
Themed with ‘Regional aspirations, national outlook’, the event was held at DK Hall with an agenda to focus on bringing positive changes in Northeast India.
The event also witnessed the participation of senior journalists Patricia Mukhim and Sangeeta Barooah Pisharoty including several other organisations.
