Meghalaya Main Secretariat has always come to the limelight for easy access. Unlike Assam Secretariat, Dispur, Guwahati, where even the passerby are being observed by the security forces. Here in Meghalaya anyone can walk through the secretariat premises as short cut. After the installation of Access Control System (ACS) since last year, few incidents of displeasure from the NGOs activists came to fore after being prevented to enter the building, this time is none other than the elected member from Chokpot Assembly Constituency, Clifford Marak who was prevented by the Secretariat Security Staff from entering.
The point to ponder here is not about the stringent security measures, or about the Security Staff failing to recognize the Members of NGOs or this time the Legislator, it is more about the performance of the security staff in Meghalaya.
Recently the demand for security in both private offices and homes are high. There are just two private companies who supply such manpower on monthly basis. Home Guard also has such provision on demand.
