Shillong: The local NGO’s, including the KSU, FKJGP and HNYF had a meeting yesterday, with the Deputy Commissioner of East Khasi Hills Smt. Matsiewdor War to inquire about the establishment of the Entry and Exit points for restriction of influx in the state.
But what they found out was rather surprising that after 2 years, the government is not able to frame any rules for checking influx in the state and no notification was sent regarding such rule which ensures restriction of entry and exit through check points vide the Meghalaya Residents Safety and Security Act 2016.
While talking with the reporters,KSU president Shri Lambokstarwell Marngar said that the DC has ensured that the process is still ongoing. But the government has not passed any written document regarding this rule as such. Further he said that regarding this matter the government needs to take actions urgently and the check points should be made to function effectively so that influx of outsiders would be restricted greatly.
” The Secretariat should not be just a place to pile up files and records but rather it should be a place which functions effectively” Shri Lambokstar said.He said that the DC had ensured that by the end of this month she will push the issue to be solved accordingly. Till date, the government has not kept any record of outsiders who came and settled in our state and this is the job of the Task Force.
While FKJGP president, Mr Wilbirth Rani said that all the NGO’s want that the government should complete framing these rules and there should be no further delay.
“It is surprising that just to give the notice and to frame the rules, 2 years had already passed by.This issue creates doubts towards the functioning of the government itself and if there are no actions taken, then the matter will be handled by the NGO’s accordingly.” says the FKJGP president.
