In an attempt to preserve and uplift the Khasi language the political party (KHM) has urged all the indigenous people to attend the public rally to support the cause and positive intention of the KAS. He informed that leaders of KHM right from the central leadership will be participating in the public rally. “We urge all our members to come out in numbers and attend the rally on May 5, at Dorbah Hall Jaiaw Shyiap at 11AM,” he said.
