NAHARLAGUN, Oct 18: Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad Sangma has assured any possible assistance to the churches in continuing the efforts to contribute towards the development of society during his visit to the Bishop's residence at Pappunallah near here on Monday.
Speaking to the reporters, Sangma said the Church has immensely participated in bringing up a better society, especially in the state of Arunachal Pradesh. He said there are more than 40,000 students studying in different educational institutions that are run by Catholic missionaries.
“My father had also visited the place earlier. At the same time I also look to help the Church in improving the service they have been providing the people and society at large,” he said, adding that the visit was purely personal and has no other intention.            
On the sidelines, speaking on the NPP Conclave that is scheduled to be held on Tuesday next, Sangma said that it is very important as the entire regional issues will be discussed on the day.
He also said a clear message of the conclave is,’ while we maintain regional aspirations, can we also ensure that the national interest and outlook is being maintained. How do we balance the regional aspects with national aspects, and that’s what the conclave aims to deliver, he added.       
“Therefore, I appeal to the youths and public of the state to come forward and participate in the conclave. Apart from this, we will be also holding a series of conclaves in different parts of the northeast,” he said.
He said the issues are not political but regional and in the interest of the indigenous.     
Sangma also said that the Northeast region should not only be a part of the country rather supersede the other parts of the country to be the best economic zone.
He said that lots of economic developmental activities have been seen in the entire northeast region, and hoped it continues. He said the aspiration of the National People’s Party is to ensure the development activities are carried forward in the northeast and country as a whole.
Earlier, Sangma also visited Jawaharlal Nehru state Museum along with his spouse.
