If it really is a matter of pride to be 1st in anything then Meghalaya has reasons to be proud. By becoming India’s first state to declare its own water policy, this state has occupied a place in the history of water conservation.
On July 13, 2019, Meghalaya -- literary meaning the abode of cloud -- made a very bold beginning with the State’s Cabinet approving the Draft of the Policy in the presence of Chief Minister Conrad K. Sangma.
The Chief Minister also very aptly gave his message to the country through Twitter: “It is historic for #Meghalaya as we have become the first State in the country to have a State water policy.”
This revolutionary step comes close on the heels of launching of the Jal Shakti Mission of Meghalaya government to solve the problems of the people related to water shortage.Add a comment Read more: Meghalaya Becomes 1st State to Have a Water Policy, Makes History
