Rs.12 crore has been sanctioned by the Meghalaya government for the construction of the new building.

While addressing everyone present, CM Conrad Sangma said, it is our commitment to improve the education scenario in Meghalaya. The new college building when completed will cater to the needs of Baghmara in particular and students of South Garo Hills in general. It has been the collective responsibility of the MDA Govt to ensure that developmental initiatives reach to remote areas of the State. South Garo Hills has remained neglected for years, we have prioritised our programmes to ensure welfare and development of the area.

Earlier Conrad K Sangma had unveiled the newly erected bust of Capt Williamson A. Sangma and paid floral tribute on his 30th Death Anniversary at a ceremony held in Baghmara.

We honour our great leader, the architect of Meghalaya whose ideals continues to motivate and inspire us,” said Conrad K Sangma.
