Shillong, Jan 21: The Confederation of Meghalaya Social Organizations (CoMSO) has called upon all sixty legislators of the state to meet together with Union Home Minister Amit Shah when he arrives in Shillong this week.
The leaders of the confederation appealed to the legislators to keep their politics aside and focus on the resolution passed in the Assembly in 2019 on the implementation of the Inner Line Permit (ILP).
The Confederation of Meghalaya Social Organizations (CoMSO) on Thursday organized a statewide ‘candlelight vigil’ as a mark of protest against the Centre’s delay to implement the inner line permit (ILP) system in the state.
The protest coincided with the celebration of Meghalaya’s 49th year of statehood and ahead of the union home minister Amit Shah’s visit to the state for chairing the 69th plenary session of the North Eastern Council (NEC) in Shillong on January 23.
The protest is also over the delay of state Governor Satya Pal Malik to approve the Meghalaya Residents, Safety and Security (Amendment) Bill, 2020.
Also, these organizations are concerned about the long-pending boundary dispute with Assam, the delay to include Khasi and Garo languages in the Eighth Schedule to the Constitution of India and several other issues.
