The state Cabinet meeting Friday presided over by Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma approved the recommendations received from the state naming authority tasked with the job to name roads, and institutions after personalities, Home Minister James K Sanga told reporters.
"There was a popular demand going to the fact that majority of the money spent on the construction of the stadium was initiated by PA Sangma during his tenure as Tura MP. Today the state government has decided to honour the contribution that he (PA Sangma) made towards the construction of that stadium," he said.
The state Cabinet has also decided to name a road leading from Mawlai-Mawroh to Madan in honour of Saint Teressa.
Two roads under Greater Laban area in the city have also been renamed after two former MLAs. Howel Road was renamed Thranghok J Rangad Road while Zikzak Road was renamed as Ardendu Chaudhuri road.
The Batti Bazar road at Laban was also renamed as Roland Lyngdoh Road, Sylhetipara Road at Laban as Krepsing Swer Road and Jackson Trace Road at Lower Lumparing as Melington Kharkongor Road, the Home minister said.
