In his address, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said, "Assam Rifles, Paramilitary Force, Meghalaya and Government of India have to work together to make Cherrapunji green again. In the coming 10-15 years, a situation has to be created so that if the highest rainfall occurs, it will be in Cherrapunji.'' At the same time, he further said, "Earlier, Cherrapunji used to receive the highest rainfall in the country. Within 25-30 years, Cherrapunji has lost his identity. This is due to the indiscriminate felling of trees. Meghalaya is a state living in the midst of clouds, if there is less rainfall here, what a big crisis it is.''
