KSU Laban wants Zig-Zag road to be named after Hoping Stone

Shillong, Oct 31: The Khasi Students’ Union (KSU) on Monday demanded that Zig-zag road should be renamed after statehood leader Hoping Stone Lyngdoh.

In a letter to GAD Minister Sniawbhalang Dhar, president of KSU Laban Circle Reuben Najiar said in 2019, the union had strongly objected renaming the road Ardhendu Choudhury road as it was without the consent of the Dorbar Shnong of Kench’s Trace, Oxford, Rilbong (KOR).


Najiar said the union upholds the decision of the Dorbar Shnong to rename the said road to Hoping Stone Lyngdoh road. The decision was taken at a public meeting on November 27 last year.

He further said that KSU was surprised that on June 27 this year, the cabinet decided to rename the Harisabha road as Bhaskar Choudhury road, again without the consent of the Dorbar Shnong Laban.

“Thus, it is in these regards that the union would like to seek your intervention that the renaming of the road to Bhaskar Choudhury road should be omitted since it’s without the consent of the Dorbar Shnong Laban and against the will of the concern stakeholders and public at large. And to affirm the renaming of Zig-zag Road to Hoping Stone Lyngdoh Road as decided by the public in the Dorbar (General Body Meeting) of Dorbar Shnong K.O.R,” he stated in the letter.
