The EJNC, an NGO, has strongly condemned the statement made by the Chief Minister of Assam and expressed concern over its potential to harm the relationship between the two states.

During a programme held in the evening, organized by the General Secretary CEC Nangjan Dkhar, President Sambormi Lyngdoh stated that Mukroh village has been a part of Meghalaya for hundreds of years. He pointed out that the Meghalaya government has provided development schemes and infrastructure to the village, and its residents vote in the Meghalaya assembly. Therefore, he questioned how the Assam CM could claim that Mukroh is not a part of Meghalaya.
