SHILLONG, Aug 2: The 13 NGOs of the state who had launched an agitation to demand the implementation of ILP in the state on Monday would seek an appointment with Chief Minister, Dr Mukul Sangma to discuss the progress of the ‘comprehensive mechanisms’ to check influx in Meghalaya. “It has been one and a half year since the government assured us that a system will be put in place to curb ubated influx in the state. But till now no such progress has been made,” Federation of Khasi Jaiñtia and Garo People (FKJGP) president Joe Marweiñ said today.
According to Marweiñ the Deputy Commissioners and the Directorate of Land Records and Survey have done their job but the government is yet to implement the first phase.
In the first phase of the mechanisms, the government was supposed to set up three entry-exit points at Byrnihat (Ri-Bhoi), Ratacherra (East Jaiñtia Hills) and Rani (West Khasi Hills).
The Deputy Commissioner’s office has acquired land and even survey has been completed in this connection.
“We see no signs on the part of the state government to implement the mechanisms. If the government delays we will have to do a rethink,” Marweiñ warned.
