Meghalaya CM Conrad K Sangma unveils “MyMeG- A Citizen Engagement Initiative”

"In the last three and half years, our government has taken several steps to ensure holistic development of the state. Our vision is to transform Meghalaya into one of the Top ten states in the country by 2030. To achieve this, we have been working tirelessly to improve the well-being of our farmers, women, youth, and every section of the society. To take this further, we want citizens participation and engagement in the governance process. With the launch of MyMeG Program, we aim to promote participatory democracy in Meghalaya, where people can contribute in the governance process and share their feedback on various government programs and initiatives. This will bring transformation in governance by citizen participation, engagement, and empowerment”, said CM Sangma.
