SHILLONG, Nov 05: The banned militant outfit Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC) who has been pronounced as a spent force by the state police, on Sunday stated that the group is preparing a hit list of the state legislators and chief minister Dr Mukul Sangma tops the list.
“Many of our Khasi politicians who are the backstabbers of our ‘jaidbynriew’ are in the hitlist of the HNLC and we are keeping low because our preparations are going on to start our hitlist objectives,” said Publicity Secretary of HNLC, Sainkupar Nongtraw in a press communiqué further claiming that the group had earlier tried to hunt down incumbent Nongkrem MDC HS Shylla.
Alleging the chief minister of working against the aspiration of the indigenous people and controlling the enquiry commissions set up to bring justice, Nongtraw said, “The CM is also included into the top hit list and we have taken this decision after we had received a lot of complaints against the CM starting from Jaintia hills, Ri Bhoi, west khasi hills and even Garo hills.”.
Stating that the chief minister who gave them the hope of peace talks and cheated, does not deserve to live, Nongtraw said, “In case if he loses the 2018 upcoming legislative assembly elections he shall become very vulnerable and it will be easy for us to hunt him down”.
Meanwhile, the militant outfit upheld the judgement of the High court of handing over the White ink scam to the CBI for further investigation.
“We hope that this time there won’t be any kind of manipulation from the incumbent MUA II. Since the formation of the MUA II we had witnessed a lot of enquiry commissions including the fake encounter of Full moon Dhar, the shootout at Mookhep Jaintia hills, the killing of Ajaju political Secy ANVC and so on,” said Nongtraw.
“All these enquiry commissions were functioning like puppets into the hands of Dr Mukul Sangma. The unholy nexus between the police department and the politicians brought in a lot of injustices to our people,” he added.
Blaming the chief minister for the downfall of the governance and justice in the state, Nongtraw cautioned, “This is just a humble warning. The choice is yours, whether you change your dictatorial mindset or you face the bullet.”
