With the State government keen to boost high-value tourism in Meghalaya, the Ultimate Legend Bikers’ Association (TULBA) has urged Chief Minister Conrad Sangma to improve road conditions if his government is really serious about making this a reality.
Stating that roads are the backbone of a State that has no rail or air connectivity to speak of, TULBA president Seiborlang L. Nonglait said that there are many beautiful tourist spots in South West Khasi Hills and other parts of the State that cannot be explored because of the lack of proper roads.
Nonglait said this at a function to mark the election of new members to TULBA’s Mawkyrwat and Rangblang units.
He also reminded the members of the association that one of the aims of TULBA is to lead by example by living a decent life and conducting awareness programmes on the harmful effects of drugs.
“We want our members to be role models and lead by example and to make people understand and spread the awareness on the harmful effects of drugs,” he said.
Nonglait also spoke on the importance of road safety while riding two-wheelers and the danger of speeding.
