Meghalaya: ‘No ILP, No Rest’ chants reverberate across state
The Confederation of Meghalaya Social Organisation (C0MSO), a conglomeration of the various social organisations in the State, has reiterated their demand for the implementation of the Inner Line Permit (ILP) in the entire state. COMSO said that the NPP led MDA Government should come out clear on its stand on the implementation of the provisions of the ILP as per the Eastern Bengal Frontier Regulation, 1873. “We are confused at the moment due to the contracting statements made by Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma and Deputy Chief Minister, Prestone Tynsong. On one hand, Chief Minister stated that ILP should not be made an issue. On the other hand, Deputy Chief Minister is saying that the Government is ready to incorporate the provisions of ILP in the proposed amendment of the Meghalaya Resident Safety and Security Act, 2016,” HYC general secretary Roy Kupar Synrem told newsmen during the black flag protest of CoMSO which was held across the State to oppose the State Government’s delay in implementing ILP in the State.
