The others included Jamris Langstang, Erick Dkhar, Robin Siangshai, Samuel Latam, Jimris Langstang, and Dibait Dkhar, all of whom are known for their expertise in growing oranges.

The group was accompanied by officials including Raja Brahma, MCS, the Extra Assistant Commissioner cum Nodal Officer for EJHD, Hun Ioo Blah, the District Project Manager for Basin East Jaintia Hills District, Programme Associate for Basin, and Smt. Bamerishisha Rymbai, the District Horticulture Officer for East Jaintia Hills District.
