DoNER Minister Dr Jitendra Singh on Wednesday appreciated the new government in Meghalaya and said that the state government has put the things on fast track and shown a visible effort to bring about transformation.
Dr Singh told this when Meghalaya Power Minister James PK Sangma called on the Union Minister in New Delhi and discussed several issues pertaining to the state government.
The DoNER Minister has appreciated the manner in which the new government under Chief Minister Conrad Sangma had put the things on fast track and shown a visible effort to bring about transformation. He also appreciated the discretion and wisdom with which the government tackled the local protests which had arisen out of a social dispute, soon after the government had taken over.
Dr Jitendra Singh also referred to the Railway track work undertaken in the state which had, for so many years, never seen a train. He insisted upon the Minister to discuss with the Chief Minister and find an appropriate way of enabling the expansion of air-strip and airport at Shillong.
James Sangma appreciated Dr Singh’s gesture of having recently visited the “Behdienkhlam” mela at Jowai, Meghalaya, which had sent a very positive message, because the place had been rarely visited by a Union Minister in the past.
Sangma also thanked the DoNER Minister for his regular visits and keen interest in the development of the State. He also appreciated the big boost given to the Power Sector by the Modi Government in the last four years.
