Nongrum in tears

From A Reporter
SHILLONG, Oct 12: Khun Hynniewtrep National Awakening Movement (KHNAM) MDC from Jaiaw constituency Adelbert Nongrum broke down in tears on the first day of the Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council’s (KHADC) winter session here on Thursday while stressing on the need to amend the AD Rule 128.
The Executive Committee (EC) in its report placed before the House directed the committee overlooking the proposed amendment of the AD Rule 128 headed by Nongkrem MDC HS Shylla to re-examine the matter along with experts.
During the discussion, an emotional Nongrum said, “I will continue to follow this matter and this is one issue I will take up against the PDF in the upcoming election. We continue to strive for majority in the House but the sad part is outside the House our people are becoming a minority.”
In his reply, KHADC Chief Executive Member (CEM) PN Syiem said, “We are in an institutional body and we will protect our people as per the provision of the constitution through the correct path and we need to work hard so that the amendment we bring will be strong and no one can question it.”
