Meghalaya hopes to add another 700 Mega Watt to its capacity in the coming years to be able to sell power to Bangladesh.

Meghalaya chief minister Conrad K Sangma on Thursday said during his recent meeting with Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in Dhaka, power was one of the subjects he discussed with her.
