The Meghalaya CM also added that while government and its different departments do their part the society also has a big role in maintaining the assets and infrastructures that have been created.

“Whether it is maintaining things, maintaining law and order or curbing anti-social activities if society also gives a helping hand it will make a big difference,” he said.

“Our people very conveniently throw garbage on the roadside and I hope that does not happen to the Shillong Mawlai Bypass,” said the CM.

He appealed to the society to ensure that the bypass does not become a dumping ground, a parking lot or anti social hub.

“In all the efforts of the government whether it is creating infrastructures or efforts to keep Shillong clean, nothing will be successful if the society does not participate,” he said.

He said since there will be a lot of tourist flow with the opening of the bypass, the CM urged the people to help the tourists and make them feel welcomed.

Conrad Sangma added that the Mawkynroh Police Outpost would also be of great help to the people of the area and to ensure that traffic is smooth on the Shillong Mawlai Bypass.

The CM also flagged off the fourteen First Responder Traffic Police Bikes on the occasion.

Among others, who were present during the inauguration were Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong, Transport Minister Sniawbhalang Dhar, Education Minister Lahkmen Rymbui and Mawlai MLA P.T. Sawkmie.
