The Confederation of Meghalaya Social Organisations (CoMSO) today reminded all parties not to play politics with the demand to implement the Inner Line Permit (ILP) in the state.
CoMSO Chairman, Robertjune Kharjahrin, speaking after a meeting with Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma, said that he had noticed reports saying that the opposition had left it in the hands of the government to follow up with the central government on ILP.
Far from leaving it to the government, Kharjahrin said that all parties presenting a united front on the matter would show that Meghalaya is united behind the demand to bring ILP to the state.
“Why should only the government take responsibility? The ILP resolution (in the Assembly last year) was passed unanimously by all the MLAs across party lines,” Kharjahrin said.
Meanwhile, on the amendment to the Meghalaya Residents Safety and Security Act (MRSSA), the CoMSO Chairman said his organisation will meet Governor Satya Pal Malik on the issue. The Governor had earlier declined to give his assent to the amendment bill.
