Shillong, Sept 07: State Government’s cold attitude towards Garoland issue makes ANVC(B) feel as if they don’t exist at all. Stating this Chairman, ANVC(B), Rimpu N. Marak Friday has invited the state government for an open debate on Garoland issue and needs of the Garo people in general, while declaring this to be the outfitâ€™s democratic step.
