Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma has downplayed the emergence of a new militant group, the National Liberation Council of Nongkyndong (NLCN).
“There is no new outfit. They are mere self-proclaimed members,” he told reporters today.
Sangma said the government has gathered sufficient intelligence, and appropriate action has already been taken, whereby all of them have been arrested.
Stating that situation is under control, the Chief Minister said the government is on a high alert. “We are closely monitoring the situation and we cannot take things for granted. We will not lower our guard in any way,” he added.
