The ruling National People’s Party (NPP) on Monday decided to build a museum in honour of former Lok Sabha speaker late Purno Agitok Sangma besides erecting his statue in Tura.
“As a tribute to his contribution to the state and national politics, a statue of PA Sangma will be erected in Tura,” Meghalaya Chief Minister and NPP National President, Conrad K Sangma said.
He said a biography on his life will be written and a book on his ideology will be published by 2021. Conrad, who is also Sangma’s son, said the party will also build a museum in honour of his father.
