Speaking at the official programme celebrating the 73rd Republic Day at polo grounds here on Wednesday, the CM said although such incidents do not reflect our society as a whole but the acts of one or two individuals sends a wrong message across.

“We have seen many instances of communal violence. We are seeing situations where individuals have been targeted. Ofcourse we know that this does not reflect our society… Particular individuals might be doing this. But while this happens, as a society, we must reflect and see what we can do to change this… not the society but 1 or 2 individuals. And we need to realize the message we are giving,” CM Sangma said at the event.

“It is up to us as a society to ensure that even these one or two stray incidents that are happening should not be allowed. It should be condemned and as a society and as organizations we should take the responsibility to ensure that we respect each other while we fight for our identity, while we fight for our rights, while we fight for our people and our community. We must respect others also,” he added.
