SHILLONG, Aug 29: The much anticipated talks between NGOs and the state government failed on Thursday, resulting in the former calling for a 12 – hour bandh on Monday to press for speedy implementation of Inner Line Permit (ILP) in Meghalaya.
With the government giving its usual excuse of devising a much ‘stronger’ mechanism than ILP to check influx in state, the discontented NGOs walked out of the meeting on Thursday, rendering it inconclusive. Subsequently, after a short meeting, the NGOs declared the bandh on Monday, to be effective from 5 am to 5 pm.
