In memory of those who gave their lives in the struggle for India’s freedom, a two minutes silence will be observed on January 30 at 11am throughout Meghalaya.
A signal should be sounded at 11am at the sound of which all persons should stand up and traffic on the road should come to a standstill and observe the silence. For these two minutes, all workshops and factories should stop work wherever practicable and All India Radio should stop broadcasting.
The commencement and termination of the two minutes silence would be indicated to the citizens by the sound of army guns or sirens. Sirens should be sounded from 10:59am until 11am and after the two minutes silence is over, all clear sirens should again be sounded from 11:02am to 11:03am.
