Meghalaya : CM’s warning against harassment at entry points

The entry point construction at Umling is expected to be over by November. Meghalaya Chief Minister, Conrad Sangma has focused to make sure that residents of the state are safe while no harassment is faced by people coming from outside.

Replying on the ending day of the autumn session of the Assembly, Chief Minister Conrad Sangma said that all people coming to Meghalaya are not illegal immigrants and all people are not here with ill intentions.

He said, “In the process, we need to be careful that in the process of finding one or two (foreigners), ninety-nine others (Indian Citizens) do not suffer”.

“Apart from Umling, the facilitation centre as Mendipathar railway station in North Garo Hills is expected to be completed by December, 2020,” he said.
For setting up the entry and exit points, 24 locations had been selected in the Phase I, out of a total of 41, for which land acquisition work is ongoing.

The opposition wants an unchanged point for the entry and exit to be set up, said Nongpoh MLA, Mayralborn Syiem.

With the entry and exit point, ILP will be indirectly implemented in the state, said Mawlai MLA, PT Sawkmie.
