Shillong: After taking a lead by adopting a lower primary school in Shohphria Village, around 80 Kms from here, Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma visited the school on Tuesday and solicited support from all concerned.
“It was a simple idea that since education is the priority for the government and education being so important for the future of our children and the state, I came up with this initiative to encourage legislators, government officials, business houses to contribute whatever little they can for the welfare of our students,” Sangma said
He inspected the Shohphria Government Lower Primary School, near Nongstoin in West Khasi Hills, which was renovated recently with Chief Minister’s one and half month salary amounting to Rs 3.14 lakh.
Last month, Chief Minister had announced that he would contribute his salary, which was immediately released for the renovation of the school. He expressed satisfaction as the school was renovated with the contribution. He said that he would continue to support and help many other schools in the State.
