Who is Sainkupar Nongtraw

Written by Meghalaya Times. Posted in Letter to Editor

Sir,
As Meghalayans living in Delhi most of us have been keeping a close track of developments in Meghalaya, especially the ongoing ridiculous agitation over an outdated colonial law known as the ILP. The HNLC bandh call for the 23rd of Dec came as a rude shock to one and all as our hearts went out to near and dear ones in Meghalaya whose festive mood was spoiled by such opportunists.

Of Water Resources and Ecological Disturbances

Written by Meghalaya Times. Posted in Letter to Editor

Sir,

Water is precious for the survival of mankind as well as the animal and plant. No person can live without any drop of water or food, if so then he/she is an extraordinary person on earth! About 3/4 of the Earth surface area is covered with water in the forms of fresh rivers, lakes, ponds and oceans etc.
In the coming next three or four months, the residents of Tura Town will be delightful to notice again the same scenario of acute water scarcity i.e. lack of Endeavour by the pathetic concern department in and around the poorly planned of Tura Town.

ILP led Situation in Shillong

Written by Meghalaya Times. Posted in Letter to Editor

Sir,

Everyone has been voicing their opinion about the ILP for some time now. Let me tell you a story, just the other day I went to the shop near my house to buy eggs. After some queries I learnt that the egg which comes from Assam sometimes hasn’t got a chance to deliver in the market due to the recent road blockade in the wake of ILP and due to this reasons there are no eggs in the market, therefore, after the blockade, as per the shopkeepers’ view point the prices of the eggs are going to hit the sky.

Why our Government is Passive

Written by Meghalaya Times. Posted in Letter to Editor

Sir,
I believe our Chief Minister and his Ministers are sure to understand the significance of ILP as one of the strong mechanisms to protect the indigenous people in the state.  One might ask a question, if that is the case, then why it is not implemented? Why his government is so obstinate? I assume the decision whether to implement or not, is not in their hands.

Pros and Cons of the intense issue in State

Written by Meghalaya Times. Posted in Letter to Editor

Sir,
The most intense issue at the moment is the “Inner Line Permit”. The pro-ILP section of the society like the NGOs and the student body of Meghalaya are demanding for the enforcement of the inner line permit. However, the government led by chief minister, Dr. Mukul Sangma, is opposed to this idea. He is of the view that other methods could be adopted to keep a check on illegal immigrants. Moreover, according to statistics, census 2011, only 13% of the total population constitute of non-tribals/ non-indigenous. There have been incidents of chaos and normal day-to-day life has been paralysed due to the steps taken by the supporters.
