Lanong backs use of Hindi

Shillong, May 27: Deputy chief minister B.M. Lanong today stressed the need to popularise the use of Hindi in Meghalaya. The Khasi leader delivered his speech in Hindi to drive home the point that learning the language should be encouraged.

Addressing the closing session of the “Rashtriya Hindi Vikash Sammelan” at the Rajasthan Vishram Bhawan here today, Lanong lauded the efforts of the academy for popularising Hindi language, particularly in Meghalaya and other states of the Northeast.

The programme was organised by Purvotar Hindi Academy, Shillong. Poets, writers, columnists, artists and singers across the country took part in the sammelan.
