Shillong, March 15: The Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) has asked the state government to review the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed with Assam to resolve 6 of the 12 areas of difference in the border.
A meeting was held in this regard on Monday attended by the Chief Executive Member (CEM) of the KHADC Titos Chyne and the traditional heads of the Himas – Hima Mylliem, Jirang, Nongspung, Jyrngam and Hima Nonglang.
Chyne said considering the statement made by the chief minister on the floor of the House, the Himas do not agree the inclusion of some villages with Assam. Hence they sought the intervention of the KHADC.
It was decided that the KHADC will write to the state to review the MoU.
He said a mutual understanding and a mutual agreement between the traditional heads of the Himas, the Council and the state government is the need of the hour.
Chyne also condemned the vandalism by the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of Hima Sohiong at the KHADC office on March 11.
The JAC of Hima Sohiong had protested on the premises of the KHADC on Friday demanding the removal of the Lyngdoh of Hima Sohiong, Bashemphang Thabah. The JAC wanted to meet the KHADC CEM or the EM Elaka Jambor War, failing which they vandalised the gate of KHADC building.
