There was lot of problem in this village there is no electricity no water supply no health center and from the time meghalaya got state till now no road construction and therefore people had to walk on foot to reach the market for more than ten hours a day it is sad to tell but our representative and minister are still blind if this still remain with out road no doubt many youth Will join the militants as this is only option to solve the problem and thanks for giving the chance to comment.
Mawkyrwat, West Khasi Hills District

The road condition is so pathetic.I request the Meghalaya govt. to repair immediately the road connecting Mawkyrwat(Dist. Headquarter South West Khasi Hills Dist.) and Nongstoin (Dist. Head quarter West Khasi Hills Dist.). The scenery along the road is so beautiful but due to bad road condition, all the beauty is in vain as no one would ever like to come and travel through this village.
