Shillong, Dec 7: President of Khasi Students’ Union (KSU) Lambokstarwell Marngar said that the Union along with other organizations will continue their peaceful agitation to demand the implementation of Inner Line Permit (ILP) with the burning of effigies in all district headquarters which will culminate in Shillong on December 17.

Speaking at a programme to pay tribute to former KSU President, late Bull N Lyngdoh, on the 26th death anniversary on Monday, he said, “The state government passed a resolution on the implementation of ILP last year and it will soon be one year. The Union Government has not done its part. The Government of India has to honour the voice of the 60 MLAs in the state”.

The KSU leader exhorted the KSU members and young people to ‘be ready’ if the state government delays the implementation of ILP and to start the operation of entry and exit point. Hinting at starting a more aggressive agitation, he said, “The KSU members should be ready as the coming year will not be easy”.

He said that in the first phase to pressure the implementation of ILP, KSU along with FKJGP, HNYF, RBYF held a sit-in demonstration in all the district headquarters.

He said that it was not easy for the organisations to come up with agitation programmes given the pandemic, the loss of livelihood and education, however, on Saturday the 4 organizations have started the second phase of agitation with a peaceful agitation by burning effigies of the Union Government and Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in Ri Bhoi.

He informed that today, the December 7, there is the burning of effigies in West Khasi Hills district and it will continue in other districts as well. And it will culminate on December 17 here in Shillong.
