In his message to the people of Meghalaya on the occasion of Easter Sunday, Chief Minister Conrad Sangma said, "The world is facing an extraordinary challenge, as we fight COVID-19 crisis."

The "Meghalaya Prays" initiative of the Chief Minister was streamed and broadcast live in various channels and social media platforms on Sunday at 6 pm.

The programme gained immense popularity and momentum with the citizens across the region as they solemnly took part in the hymns - "Amazing Grace" and "How Great thou art" with candles in their hands.

Easter Sunday commemorates Jesus Christ's resurrection from death- the victory over evil with the resurrection of Jesus Christ sparks hope and light into the world especially in troubled times such as these.

"This Easter Sunday, the prayer and hymn that we had, I hope and believe that the strength of every person will go up. I am happy that the prayer has gone well," Sangma said.

Expressing his gratitude to the people for participating in the prayer hymns, Sangma said "This is truly a blessing for all of us as it has brought people from different states and from different parts of the world together to pray for our nation and the world."

"I would like to thank everyone who have helped make this happen and everyone who have participated and supported in ensuring that more and more people could be reached out through this prayer hymn," he added.

"A blessed Easter Sunday to all of you," the Chief Minister further added.
