KSU shuts banks, offices during Seng Kut Snem

Shillong, Nov 23: The Khasi Students’ Union (KSU) has shut down banks, offices and institutions after they were found opening during Seng Kut Snem.

The activists closed down the post office at Mairang in Eastern West Khasi Hills for functioning despite it being a holiday on account of the festival.


The KSU Shillong Mihngi Circle also met the authorities of the North Eastern Institute of Ayurveda and Homeopathy (NEIAH) and National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) and asked them to immediately close down.

Banks and offices in the Mawlai area were also closed down.

According to a KSU leader, the functioning of these institutions only shows that they disrespect the indigenous people of the state. He also warned all offices and institutions that failed to respect special occasions and festivals observed by the indigenous people.
