Conrad Sangma

The Meghalaya cabinet on June 9 approved the proposal for the setting up of three colleges which includes a veterinary college, dairy college and fisheries college in the state.

Informing this after the meeting, chief minister Conrad Sangma told reporters that the veterinary college and the dairy college will be set up at Kyrdemkulai in Ri Bhoi district while the fisheries college will be in Garo Hills.

He, however, said that the exact location for the fisheries college will be decided once the fisheries department submit the details of the different options that are there but it will be in the Garo Hills region.

On the capacity intake of these colleges, the chief minister said: “We are hopeful the intake in all the three colleges will be between 60-100 (students) annually.”

Meanwhile, the cabinet has also approved the Meghalaya District Courts (Ministerial) Amendment Rules.

CM Conrad Sangma said this was done based on the communication from the Meghalaya high court.

“In a nutshell, this would enable the district courts to employ or to take people and conduct the interviews at the district level like it is being done in the district selection committees instead of it being conducted by the high court,” he added.
