At the same time, it generates avenues of employment. However, in Meghalaya, the people are inherently NOT businessmen says Chief Minister, Dr Mukul M. Sangma who advocates for the needs of inspiration, encouragement, guidance and handholding for our potential youth to look at the space of entrepreneurship.

The third Anniversary of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (Clean India Mission) campaign, which was launched on October 2, 2014 at Rajghat, New Delhi, by Prime Minister, Narendra Damodardas Modi is yet to show positive transformation in the society. It has been attributed to the traditional old habit of apathy towards society, worst so, the practice of manually cleaning excrement from private and public dry toilets and open drains still persists in most societies, particularly in urban sectors. Shamelessly, the high society continues to organize cleaning drives only as photo-shoot opportunities to be featured in media headlines.
