Attaining Statehood
Meghalaya was inaugurated as an autonomous State on 2ndApril 1970 at Garrison Ground, Shillong. It was created within the state of Assam by the Assam Re-organization (Meghalaya )Act, 1969.

Meghalaya as a state was inaugurated on January 21st , 1972 by the then Prime Minister of India Smt. Indira Gandhi,in the presence of the Governor, Shri. Biraj Kumar Nehru. Hundreds of people attended the inaugural ceremony at Polo Ground to witness this historic moment in the State’s history. Captain Williamson A.

Hill State Movement
The Non-Violent Direct Action (NVDA) was launched on the 9th of September 1968 in the Khasi-Jaintia and Garo Hills. The adherence to non-violent and constitutional struggle ultimately crystalized into an organization known as NVDA volunteers. The existence of the NVDA made the Hill State Movement for Meghalaya a unique one in that it was largely a non-violent and peaceful movement.
