SHILLONG, Feb 22 � In a first in the North East, Opposition NCP in Meghalaya today opened a �Call Centre� for people to field questions on a variety of issues which they want the government to answer.
�Ahead of the Budget session of the Assembly, we have opened up a people�s call-centre which will receive questions from citizens on all issues they feel the government should answer,� Leader of Opposition, Conrad K Sangma told reporters.
He said it was the idea of one of his Facebook friends to have a call centre of the party so that it could reach out in a better way ahead of the Budget session and the Assembly election scheduled early next year.
