SHILLONG, MAY 10: Deputy Chief Minister in-charge Home (Police) Prestone Tynsong on Friday asked the political parties to leave it to the wisdom of the government and not to have doubts. The government will appoint the right person to this point, he stated.

Speaking to reporters, the deputy CM said, “Government has already taken a decision and is awaiting for ECI’s decision.”


“Two-three days back we had already sent the proposal to the ECI and we are awaiting for the clearance of the ECI and after we receive the confirmation, we will make the appointment,”he added.

Tynsong said, “in fact five names were there but two of them one is present DGP of Assam the other one, who is also holding very important post in Assam they have already shown their disinterest as they dont want to come to Meghalaya for post of DGP. So we are left with three (officers) and one amongst them is I Nongrang.”


The Voice of the People Party (VPP) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have demanded the government to appoint I Nongrang as new DGP of Meghalaya.

On this, Tynsong said, ” I will tell you at the right time but let me tell you one thing leave it to the wisdom of the government, don’t have doubts, we will appoint the right person in this important post.”

“You know political parties are political parties but let me just tell you one thing whoever says or whoever does not say leave it to the wisdom of the government because as far as appointment and transfer of the senior officers, be it chief secretary or DGP, we have to study nicely, we have to see from all angles and thereafter we take the final call,” he said while expressing confident that the government will appoint the best officer as new DGP.
