Chief Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma, along with his Meghalaya counterpart Conrad Sangma, inaugurated a Karbi Hemtun, or Karbi Bhawan, built at a cost of ₹21.5 crore by the Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council, in the Meghalaya capital of Shillong on Wednesday. The duo also took part in the foundation stone laying ceremony for the construction of a 100-bedded Karbi students’ hostel cum commercial complex, with a project cost of approximately ₹22 crore, in the pine city. The Karbi Hemtun, having a basement plus ground floor plus three other floors (Basement + G + 3), is a modern building with facilities such as conference halls, dormitories for boys and girls, restaurant, suite rooms, gym, among others, and can accomodate as many as 50 guests at a time.

Speaking at ceremonies for the above two events, Chief Minister Dr. Sarma exuded confidence the newly inaugurated Karbi Hemtun in Shillong would be of great help for residents of Karbi Anglong district of Assam visiting the pine city for various purposes. Further, with the laying of foundation stone for the construction of the 100-bedded students’ hostel today, a long step has been taken towards finding a solution to scarcity of suitable accomodations for students from Karbi Anglong pursuing their academic courses in Shillong, one of the most sought-after destinations for higher studies in the Northeastern region. Chief Minister Dr. Sarma also expressed hope the commercial complex in the hostel premises would help strengthen the financial health of the Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council.

The Chief Minister reiterated the commitment of the current dispensation in the State towards growth and development in Karbi Anglong. Chief Minister Dr. Sarma said the current government in Dispur has been paying unprecedented attention towards Karbi Anglong and its residents. Dr. Sarma also lauded the role of Chief Executive of Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council Tuliram Ronghang in the never-before-seen peace and development being witnessed in Karbi Anglong in recent times under his abled leadership.

Expressing his gratitude towards his Meghalaya counterpart Conrad Sangma for the latter’s role in the Karbi Hemtun project completion in Shillong, Dr. Sarma said he was hopeful of an amicable and logical solution to the long-standing border issues between Assam and Meghalaya. Chief Minister Dr. Sarma added that under the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) regime at the Centre, the Northeastern region has become an epicenter of peace and development and that the region is no longer a distant name for the people belonging to the rest of the parts of the country. He also expressed happiness at the Northeastern region going through a phase of academic and cultural renaissance.
