SHILLONG: Meghalaya Chief Minister, Dr Mukul M Sangma laid the Foundation Stone of the RCC Bridge No.19/2 over river Ildek, Adokgre on KDA Road at a brief function on Saturday.
Addressing the gathering, Chief Minister Dr Mukul told the people that the bridge upon completion will bring a lot of changes to the region which has been evading the people for a long time as the project never took off in the last 20 years.
The Chief Minister said that development of a region follows only with the construction of proper roads, bridges and communication, due to which only and only then a particular place can prosper in terms of everything.
He said that the spirit of democracy is in fulfilling the aspirations of the people and in fulfilling the work for which one has dedicated one’s life too. He also said that the hope and visions of the people should never die and stick to one path because if there is no hope than one is vulnerable to negative forces.

Momin local MLA mentioned about having exam centres in Adokgre which was not there before and students can now appear for their class X exams without having to go to Kharkutta.
