It may be mentioned that the Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) had extended 45 days to the Executive Dorbar of the Hima to convene a meeting under the leadership of Paiem Latho Manik Syiem following the expiry of the deadline on January 24.
The 28 Myntris had earlier stated that as per the Hima Mylliem Act, 2007 the Hima Dorbar has to be convened once every year.
Speaking to newsmen here, the CEM KHADC PN Pyiem said, “We have already set an extension to the Hima to convene the general meeting within 45 days. Since this is a mater concerning Hima Mylliem we will have to wait and see the outcome of meeting.”
Earlier around 28 Myntris (Ministers) out of the 44 Mintris of Hima Mylliem had also expressed their lack of confidence on the Syiem of Hima Mylliem Latho Manik Syiem and demanded his immediate removal.
