“Discussions were detailed and extensive covering the contemporary issues agitating the minds of the people. The leaders freely shared their views, concerns and expectations and understood on the paramount need for peace and communal harmony in society. Every leader emphasised on the need and urgeny for a vision and action plan for a progressive Meghalaya based on building on the intrinsic and potential strength of its land and people and not to be swayed or subdued by irrational fears,” the statement added.
The statement also mentioned that the Governor wishes to meet other civil society leaders, including the youth and entrepreneurs in coming days and continue the process of constructive dialogue with the society leaders.
Meanwhile news pertaining to Tathagata Roy’s joining still remains unknown and at present he is reportedly on leave.
