HYC wants change in office memo on roster system

Shillong, June 21: The Hynniewtrep Youth Council (HYC) has asked the state government to review its Office Memorandum (OM), which seeks to give alleged undue favour to the Garos and unfair treatment to the Khasi and Jaintia community.

“We object to the guidelines as it provides undue favour to the Garo community whereas the Khasi-Jaintia community is being unfairly treated and demand that the government should provide for a combined 80 percent reservation at the District Level for Garos at Garo Hills districts and 80 percent combined reservation to Khasi-Jaintias at the District Level of Khasi, Jaintia and Ri Bhoi districts,” HYC said in a letter to the Chief Minister Conrad Sangma and Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong.


“We anticipate your kind consideration and necessary for making corrections in the said guideline in a fortnight hence and failing to do so, we will have no option but to protest against this unfair treatment to our Khasi-Jaintia community,” the HYC said.

The state government had notified the Office Memorandum on May 10 following the  orders passed by the High Court on April 5 and April 20 regarding preparation of roster.
