Shillong: While Meghalaya and Assam governments are chalking out modalities on the border dispute, Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) Chief Executive Member (CEM) Titosstar Chyne on Wednesday said he was “appalled” at how the government has not included them in the regional committees.
Regional committees are headed by Cabinet ministers to prepare a ground report after consulting the stakeholders.
Earlier, the Autonomous District Council (ADCs) were part of the meetings during the initial stage but in the recent meeting, Chyne claimed, they have not been consulted.
The ADCs have a vital role to play concerning the border row since it has a record and documentation of the territories of the state, he added.
“At the initial stage, the state government had consulted us with the formation of the district committee which we are members of. But in the later stage, when the government formed the regional committees, I’m surprised in that committee we are not included,” said Chyne.
He said they were preparing documents after the government had consulted them initially and had almost completed the work.
“We are consulting traditional heads and are ready with a final report but I’m surprised that now the government has not invited us,” said Chyne.
