Shillong, Nov 11: The KHADC has sought the intervention of state government into the failure of the Assam government to maintain status quo by inaugurating a stadium at Umlaper village, Block II in Ri Bhoi.
This is one of the areas of difference.
The stadium was inaugurated by Horensing Bey, MP of Karbi Anglong, Assam on Thursday in the presence of Boithalangso MLA Rupsing Teron and EM KAAC Pardeep Rongpi. The incident was informed by Congress MDC from Mawhati Charles Marngar.
“I urge the Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma and the state government to immediately take necessary action on the matter,” KHADC chief executive member Titosstar Well Chyne said in a statement.
Chyne has decided to convene a meeting with the MDCs and traditional heads from the region. “We will also summon the Syiem of Raid Nongtung as we have to take a call on this action by the Assam government,” he said.
The KHADC chief reminded that Umlaper village is one of the areas of difference which both Assam and Meghalaya are in the process of finding an amicable solution to resolve the long pending issue.
He also said during the last meeting held between the Ri Bhoi deputy commissioner RM Kurbah and West Karbi Anglong district deputy commissioner, it was decided to further maintain the status quo.
