SHILLONG: The Confederation of Hynniewtrep Social Organisations (CoHSO) will hold a public meeting at Khliehriat, West Jaintia Hills District on January 28, concerning the Citizenship Amendment Bill 2016.
The meeting will start from 11an in the morning. The organization has urged the people of the region to come out in numbers to attend the meeting.
Sambormi Lyngdoh, President EJNC - CEC, has also urged the people of the district to attend the meeting as the subject matter is against the interest of the people of Meghalaya and the entire North East Region.
He said that the increasing numbers of illegal immigrants from across the border (Bangladesh) in the district and the state as a whole will ultimately create a problem for the indigenous community of Meghalaya. “As one we should stand united and attend the meeting putting forward the interest of the future generation of our people because we know that the CAB is the start of BJP to bulldozed the indigenous custom and tradition of the people of North East,” he said.
