Shillong, Nov 30: With the on-going talks between the Government of Meghalaya and Assam to resolve the vexed boundary dispute between the two states, the Khasi Students’ Union – North Khasi Hills Unit (KSU-NKH) said they do not agree with the ‘Give and Take Policy’ but what belongs to Meghalaya should be included within the map of the state.

Speaking to reporters, KSU-NKH representative Received Pator said the KSU is not satisfied with the policy taken up by both Governments in taking a vote by head counts during the visit of both Governments in the areas under the Nongspung-Sohiong Syiemship. Pator also alleged that the Government of Assam is using both money and muscle power in convincing the heads of villages to vote in favour of the Assam Government.

“One week prior to the meeting of both the Governments of Meghalaya and Assam, the Government of Assam sent officials to visit the village heads…. who knows they might have bribed the Village heads to vote in favour of the Assam government,”  Pator said adding that the Assam Government has deployed CRPF personnel in the area to scare off the people of Patkang under the Nongspung-Sohiong Syiemship.

Pator further alleged that the Assam Government still continues with their development projects in the disputed area where an agreement has been made by both States that they should not take any development works and maintain a status quo. “In Bakhlapara area the Assam Govt has encroached the land and rivers which is still under the Nongspung-Sohiong Syiemship, therefore we will never accept the Give and Take policy but what is ours should always be ours,” added Pator.

Just this month, the MDC from Mawhati Constituency Charles Marngar alleged that the Assam Government has inaugurated a stadium in an area which is under dispute, which  clearly shows that the Government of Assam does not respect the status quo with Government of Meghalaya.
