FROM A REPORTER

SHILLONG, Feb 16: The People Democratic Forum (PDF) has decided to place the findings of the inquiry report into the alleged misappropriation of Council funds during the three-day KHADC session scheduled to start on February 20.

The decision was taken at a meeting called by the PDF at the Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) in the city on Thursday.

“The inquiry committee was constituted by the house and we feel that the inquiry report should therefore be placed in the house when the KHADC session starts next week,” KHADC CEM P N Syiem told reporters after the PDF meeting. On the clarification sought by the United Democratic Party (UDP) on the 9 point query, he said, “We have discussed on all the 9 queries and the PDF will send a written reply to them (UDP) on all their queries by tonight itself.”

Interestingly the written reply of the PDF on the 9 point queries raised by the UDP will be handed to the PP leader of the UDP who is also part of the PDF coalition led by the CEM KHADC P N Syiem.

Earlier, UDP MDC from Nongkrem constituency H S Shylla one of the member demanding clarification from the CEM was seen arriving late to the meeting called by the PDF.

Speaking to reports after the conclusion of the meeting, Shylla said, “We will study the reply from the CEM later and tomorrow (Friday) the party will be holding a Subcommittee meeting so let’s see what the outcome is after that meeting.”
