While highlighting the political episode that had recently occurred, Zeliang reiterated that the voice of the majority always prevails in a democracy and expressed his gratefulness that it was the voice of the majority MLAs that had made him the Chief Minister today.

Zeliang said that it was not within the power of any individual to make changes in regard to the same, without the prior approval of the Central Executive Council (CEC) at a General Party Convention.

Not a single day passes without hearing the blood cuddling news of merciless killings and violence. Terrorism was seen to be the order of the day. This world scenario forces them to think, reflect and work for Peace.


Peace was an essential pre-condition and the Cornerstone of true human progress as it is said that, "Peace is indivisible and when it does not exist in any single area, it cannot be said 1 exist fully anywhere else."


Peace was not only the absence of War or Fight. Peace was Shanti or Shalom a holistic word for which includes all human conditions - economic, social, political, health of Mind, Body and soul and prosperity for one and all. This was lost in the world they were living today.


Therefore they have invited different Musical Bands from Haflong and elsewhere to join them in this noble venture - Music being a universal language breaks all barriers of Class, Caste, Creed, Community race and Language. Music also unites youths who are often lead astray and misled by vested interests groups. We are very proud to inform that in this venture of ours the following band have come forward in support - Maestro, Dark Horizon, Digital Suicide, 444, Redemption Grace, 4th Excavation, Prayas, Bistar, Soul Tree and many more.
