SHILLONG, June 21: Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma on Friday inaugurated the Mallangkona Police Outpost in the West Khasi Hills district.
Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong, MLA Rupert Momin, Meghalaya DGP Idashisha Nongrang, MDC Gigur Myrthong, and other senior officials of the police department were present on the occasion.
Delivering the inaugural address, Sangma said safety and security of the people of the state is of utmost priority for the government.
“A police outpost has been a long-pending demand of the people of Mallangkona. This new outpost sends a very strong message that safety and security of our people is important,” he said, assuring similar police setups in other critical locations across the state.
The chief minister said the outpost in an area close to the border with Assam will instil in the local people a sense of security and prevent untoward incidents. “The state government is actively engaged with the government of Assam to resolve the remaining six areas of differences,” he said.
He also said the government is aware of the difficulties faced by the people living in the border areas and asserted that the government is doing its best to address the issues and make the lives of the border residents better.
Sangma also said the Mallangkona outpost was constructed through the Public Infrastructure Renovation Fund now made available to the superintendents of police to ensure flexibility in using the fund for repairs, new construction at the district level without having to take any approval from the state government.
He lauded the people of Mallangkona for coming forward to help the government by working as labourers and providing building materials. “This is a great example of society coming together and sending a very strong message to the state. I would like to encourage other locations where such projects come up for the community to come forward and be a part of the project,” he said.
The Mallangkona Police Outpost under the Mawshynrut Civil Sub-Division was established in 2019. The construction of the new building cost Rs 17.5 lakh.
