Shillong: Nongwah Mawtamur is boiling against the Lyngdoh Sohiong heartless act and betrayal who singlehandedly and quietly handed over/sold out a big chunk of the Hima Sohiong to the Syiem of Jirang in 2015 which came to light only now through the RTI filed by the people.
There has been anger and unrest when the sale was unearthed resulting to action after action from the JAC Sohiong and the people of Nongwah Mawtamur.
Even yesterday, another public meeting was held but now it is getting stronger when the Sohiong MDC himself bah Sherborlang l.Mawlong joined the protest.
Yesterday the MDC, JAC Sohiong and the people met at Nongwah Mawtamur to upbeat protest against the Lyngdoh and in one voice all they want is that the Lyngdoh Bashemphang Thabah is ousted from the post of Lyngdoh.
This heartless action of the Lyngdoh caused further problems to the people of the tributary problems that linked to controversial border issues with Assam. It affects their daily livelihood activities.
In the meeting they all in one voice decide to demand from the KHADC to remove the Lyngdoh from the post with immediate effect lest there will be further protests
The chairman JAC Sohiong bah Passbhalang Kharngi and secretary Bah Porning Shabong said that when all necessary action completed and a new Lyngdoh is appointed they will meet Public representatives of Jirang constituency to seek their help in developmental works including road.
They also feel it is better for the Lyngdoh to resign by himself.
On the part of the MDC Sohiong he expressed his deep anguish over this highhandedness on the part of the Lyngdoh. He promised he will do all under his authority to intervene and seek government’s help to solve the problems. He also urged the KHADC to notify to all the Syiems, Lyngdoh and Sirdars not to intrude into one another territories neither sell nor gift any portion of their jurisdiction. The MDC also assured he will organize a meeting with the Syiem Jirang, Lyngdoh Hima Sohiong and Jirang MDC.
