SHILLONG: Metbah Lyngdoh, the president of UDP (United Democratic Party) on Friday penned a letter to Chief Minister Conrad Sangma to put forward their suggestions to the 'One Hundred Twenty Five (Amendment) Bill-2019'.

The letter states that the UDP, in their party meeting held on Tuesday, deliberated on the issues and concerns put forth by the ADCs (Autonomous District Councils) of the State to some suggestions of the PSC (Parliamentary Standing Committee).

The party endorses the decision of the ADCs to continue with the age-old customary laws and practices in matters of governance and administration of the tribal people of the State of Meghalaya. Therefore, the party requested the authority concerned to review the decision in this regard.

The UDP also backed the demand of KHADC (Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council) for expansion of seats from 30 to 37; and also replacing the word 'President' in the place of 'Governor' in paragraph 12A subsection (b) of the Indian constitution. The UDP president also stated that they are hopeful that the stand of the State government will commensurate with that of the ADCs; and will yield positive results as per the expectations of the people of the State.
