Shillong, Dec 12: The Governor Satya Pal Malik said that certain sections of the Meghalaya Residents Safety and Security (Amendment) Bill will have to be examined to ensure that it does not come in conflict with central laws passed by the Parliament.

This was informed by the Speaker of Meghalaya Legislative Assembly and United Democratic Party (UDP) president Metbah Lyngdoh after he met the Governor on Friday.

Speaking to reporters here on Friday, he said, “On the MRSSA, the Governor said that there are some sections that need to be examined to ensure that the MRSSA does not come in conflict with central laws”.

“He (Governor) will need little more time to fully examine the matter before giving his assent,” the Speaker added.

Metbah said that the Governor has expressed that an act like MRSSA is required for a State like Meghalaya to ensure safety and security of the people.

On opposition Congress’ demand for recalling the amendment and implementing the principal act, Metbah said, “The amended MRSSA 2019 was passed in the House not by the Government. It was passed after lots of debates.”

“I feel once it is passed in the House… we have to leave it to the wisdom of the office of the Governor for assent,” Metbah added.

As far as ILP is concerned, the Governor said that it is a Central subject and it is up to the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma had met the Governor on Wednesday to discuss the issues of MRSSA and also ILP.

Metbah informed that the Governor Satya Pal Malik will meet the Union Home Minister Amit Shah to discuss on the issues put forth by the state government and the different parties on Inner Line Permit (ILP) and Meghalaya Residents Safety and Security Amendment Bill.

It may be mentioned that the issue of ILP has taken centre stage again lately and different groups have demanded the implementation of ILP recalling that the government passed the resolution to implement ILP last year on December 19, 2019
