Hon'ble, Chief Minister said that the new district will bring administration closer to the people. He said that the new district was a long felt aspiration and desire of the people and government had to consider it after screening different parameters. He also told the gathering about his visit to Mairang as an opposition leader, where people had spelt out on the need for creation of a new district. “The new district was created not because it is in Khasi Hills or Jaintia Hills or Garo Hills but purely on basis of certain parameters, which had put the region in the bottom list of all developmental activities. We wanted to bring administration closer to the people and hence the 12th district of the State was created,” he said
