Meghalaya Government is planning to inaugurate close to 300 projects this year as part of the Golden Jubilee celebration of statehood.
After chairing a meeting to review the preparation for the celebration, Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma said, “We have listed close to about 300 projects that are there. We have decided that rather than inaugurating things in one day on the 50th year of statehood golden jubilee celebration, we will inaugurate them throughout the year so that the meaning increases….”
He said the government has decided not to go ahead with inaugurating over 50 projects due to the ongoing pandemic.
“In fact we have more than 50 projects but we feel we need to give that importance to it so we will do it throughout the year instead of doing it in one go,” he said while informing that one or two important projects will be taken up and will be announced on January 21 itself.
