A press communique issued by the Raj Bhavan today stated that discussions were detailed and extensive covering the contemporary issues agitating the minds of the people.

communal harmony in the society. Every leader emphasised the need and urgency for a vision and action plan for a progressive Meghalaya based on building of the intrinsic and potential strength of its land and people and not to
