Chief Minister Conrad Sangma on Wednesday announced that the much awaited ‘Meghalaya Youth Policy’ would get a “final shape” and be ready for launch in a month’s time, even as he emphasized on “harnessing the potential of the youth” of the State.

“A lot of innovative interventions will be made to ensure that the potentials of our youth are harnessed. It is our promise to the youth that as a committed government, we will create an environment where our youth are guided in the right direction,” he said after laying the base for the construction of an indoor stadium at Jongksha in East Khasi Hills district in presence of Sports and Youth Affairs Minister Bantiedor Lyngdoh.

The state-of-the-art sport infrastructure is being built at an estimated cost of Rs. 22 crore and is likely to be completed by December, 2022.

Eulogising the efforts of the Sports and Youth Affairs minister for his “dedication to enhance the sports facilities and infrastructure”, the Chief Minister said that the government was committed to the welfare of the youth and was working in a systematic manner to leverage the sporting infrastructure.

Talking about the sporting talent and lack of sports facilities in the state, Sangma observed, “We have immense talent in our State. However, due to lack of infrastructure and guidance, the youth are not able to unleash their full potential. This government is working with a direction to ensure that the youth of our State are given a platform to upscale their skills”.

The Chief Minister and Sports Minister also felicitated the youth of the area, who had excelled in different regional, state level and national games in the past years.

People of the area also took the opportunity to submit a memorandum to the Chief Minister, seeking his intervention for development of the viral link road in the area as well as up-gradation of the local Public Health Centre (PHC).

On receiving the memorandum, the Chief Minister announced that the PHC in Jongksha would be upgraded to a Community Health Centre (CHC) and funds for repairing of the link road, which has been in a dilapidated condition, would be sanctioned soon.
