Earlier in a meeting at Williamnagar, the State Election Committee decided that the last date for receiving the application for contesting the GHADC elections will be on or before 23 February 2021.
All the speakers spoke on the need and importance to elect quality leaders to bring about the much-needed change in the governance and administration of the GHADC which has come under serious criticism from different quarters on the functioning and the corruption issue.
The speakers also reminded the people that the UDP which is an offshoot of the APHLC which spearheaded the Hill state movement unitedly will once again make effort to bridge the relationship between the different major tribes of the state and try to articulate the dreams and aspirations of the indigenous people of the state. The UDP is hopeful that it will open its account once again in the Garo hills sector
