Speaking to media persons, HSPDP youth wing president, Sanbor Ryntathiang said that as part of the celebration, the party will be organizing a bike rally from Shillong to Mawthadrishan on January 21.
“As a part of the golden jubilee celebration (of Meghalaya), the party along with the bike rally will also be holding various workshops and seminars on the sixth schedule and eight schedules of the constitution where scholars noted and educationists from the state and outside the state will be as resource persons,” said Ryntathiang.
