FROM A REPORTER
SHILLONG, March 14: Protesting the decision of the Syiem (Chief) of Hima Sohra, Prime Freeman Sing Syiem to remove the Sordar Ekhel Marwein of Raid Majai village including its Executive Committee, the villagers on Monday organized a protest rally.
The rally was participated by people from different walks of life including students, local youths and village elders from around nine localities under Raid Majai village.
“The Syiem (Chief) and his office including the Myntri’s (Ministers) in-charge of Raid Majai has dissolved the Executive Committee led by the Sordar Ekhel Marwein with an aim to further bulldoze the rights of the people,” S Marbaniang, secretary of Dorbar Raid Majai said.
Expressing similar views, D Nongrum member of the Dorbar, alleged that the Syiem has misused his power by giving land deeds to non-tribal’s without the consent of the village authorities.
