The DoNER Minister was of the opinion that Shillong which was the capital of the Britishers and undivided Assam after independence has not received the kind of tourism attention as it deserves. Dr Singh however pointed out that the DoNER Ministry with a view to make the Shillong Airport fully functiol has offered to fund the budget required for extension of the air-strip. The DoNER Minister also said that some of the music groups from Meghalaya can also be made part of the tourism bonza capsule.
