SHILLONG, April 6: A division has been cropped up in the woman community of Tynring, a village located in the new satellite township.

It is evident from the allegiance shown by a section of the women folks who owe their allegiance to the suspended Sordar (Chief) CA Lyngdoh. On April 1, a section of women under the President of the Seng Kynthei Tynring (Women federation) P Kharmuthi have endorsed the KHADC’s decision to suspend the Sordar for alleged misuse of power.

Today,the women folks under and the other against him Prissila Nongbet stated that the Sengg Kynthei has been disbanded by the Village Council on April 18, 2011.

She further stated that the woman community of the village is shocked to hear of P Kharmuti claiming herself to be the president of the woman organization which has already been dissolved by the council.

The woman community of Tynring village condemns this act and show of strength by P Kharmuti and by going against the village, it became clear that she is siding with the person who wants to sell the plot of land. The blame that was made against the Sordar of trying to illegally selling the 1000 acres of land is untrue because the decision was taken by the council on May 30, 2011. It did not work out because MUDA decided to take another land near the village of Tynring for the new township project.

On the alleged corruption on the Sordar for misusing the TSC scheme (Total Sanitation Program), Nongphet, in her defense said, “The implementation of the scheme was taking too long due to official procedures and the village council held a meeting on 12/9/2011 decided to inform everyone who had given the Rs. 300 share to recollect the money from the Sordar or from the village treasurer”.

The suspended Sordar said that the money was given back to the people in his and the treasurer’s presence with only a few people who did not come and collect the money are the ones who wants to go against the decision of the council. He said that the people of the village are saddened by the action of local MDC Pyniaid Syiem who wants to interfere with the livelihood of the people. Negating the allegations that the funds under MGNREGS has been misappropriate, CA Lyngdoh emphatically said, “The money is still lying at the Block development office and the refusal of the women representative to put down her sigture is the prime cause for the withdrawal”. He said that the women representative is a dissident who is part of the mission to demean his position as the Sordar.

Meanwhile, The Sordar, who claimed to have the backing of the Village council, also launched a frontal attack against the local elected MDC Pyniad Singh Syiem.

“What Pyniaid Syiem is doing is something the people should be careful and aware because these kinds of people will create differences amongst the villagers,” stated Lyngdoh.
