SHILLONG, April 12: The 20th anniversary celebration of Hynniewtrep tiol Youth Front (HNYF) concluded at the Khasi tiol Dorbar Hall Mawkhar here today. Speaking at the occasion, FKJGP president Joe Marwein said, “To serve and protect the interest of the people, the HNYF has been working for the last 20 years.” He said there are many NGOs which have been coming up in the state in recent times but most of them only pay heed to their persol interest. Stating that the HNYF is also part of the pressure group to demand implementation of better mechanism to check the problem of influx into the state, he said, “The members of this organization had to suffer and sacrifice themselves for the wellbeing of their family and the state as a whole and some including member of other NGOs had to do the same when it came to demanding the implementation of Inner Line Permit (ILP).” He said the HNYF has also been working hard on the interstate and intertiol border issue which the state government has still not been able to rectify. “The only way we can have unity among our people is if we are a God fearing state,” he said.
