The Golden Jubilee Celebration of Meghalaya’s 50th Statehood day was celebrated at Resubelpara Mini Stadium in North Garo Hills.
The occasion which was held annually on 21 January in the state was celebrated at the district level here in Resubelpara on 27 April due to prevalent covid 19 situation.
In the pompous inauguration of the statehood day, Timothy D Shira, Deputy Speaker & local MLA addressed the gathering as the chief guest.
Paying tribute to the state forefathers, Shira said it was a befitting day to recall the contributions and the pain staking journey our leaders undertook for the interest of the people which ultimately led to the creation of the new state. Their tireless effort in the fight for the statehood should forever be etched in the minds of the present and the generation to come so that every individual realises the responsibility of creating a progressive state, he advocated.
Several activities were held to mark the day. The district industrial exhibition 2022 organised by DCIC was also inaugurated by the chief guest. The exhibition put up about 17 stalls displayed various products produced by local entrepreneurs like agri related produces, handicraft, wood carving, weaving, food and beverages, etc.
Indigenous games were held by the department of sports. The finale of Voice of North Garo Hills singing competition was also held as part of the programme.
