SHILLONG, Aug 07: Even as South Shillong legislator, Sanbor Shullai has always maintained a neutral stance with regards to the different communities living within his constituency and beyond, the Civil Society Women’s Organization (CSWO) has accused him being a communal person.
Accusing Shullai of throwing out non – tribal people hailing from other states who were staying at a guest house in the city on August 2, CSWO president, Agnes Kharshiing said, “Such inhuman acts by a sitting legislator are unexpected and shall not be tolerated in the civilized society.”
Informing that these people had been in the guest house after arriving in the city to attend a recruitment drive organized by the army in Shillong, Kharshiing suggested that the army gives candidates attending such recruitment drives access to its areas while pointing out that it is impossible for the hospitality sector of the city to accommodate thousands of such candidates who attend these recruitment drives.
Kharshiing also claims that Shullai had manhandled the woman running the guest house, H Passah at his residence in Bishnupur on August 4. “We condemn the manhandling of a woman, H Passah, by Shullai on the August 4, at Bishnupur, where he literally held her strongly and threw her out of his office,” Kharshiing said.
Meanwhile, Kharshiing has also condemned Shullai for his alleged actions on the day while also demanding that the authorities take stern action against the sitting Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) legislator.
“The authorities should take stern action against the erring MLA as per the law of the land, so as to also deter others in power from committing such inhuman acts in future, as the law is expected to be equal for everyone, irrespective of power or status,” Kharshiing said.
