Shillong: Union home minister Amit Shah has now advised Meghalaya chief minister Conrad K Sangma to wait for an official intimation after the Delhi elections are over.
Sangma met Union home minister Amit Shah in New Delhi on Thursday and informed him that a delegation would like to meet him. “I conveyed to the Union home minister regarding the resolution that was passed to implement the ILP in Meghalaya, which was passed on the 19th of December, 2019. Informed him that a delegation from Meghalaya would like to meet him and I expressed the requirement and desire to implement ILP. He was very positive and assured that he will meet the delegation and he will be sending an official intimation to us right after the Delhi elections are over,” said Sangma.
In a statement issued by the chief minister’s office, Sangma also informed that numerous issues regarding the state of Meghalaya and the Northeast was discussed.
Sangma also discussed regarding the issues pending in the District Councils and updated Shah of the status of things in the Khasi, Jaintia and Garo Hills District Councils and briefed about the issues concerning each district council.
“We discussed about the overall law and order situation in the state and the different economic issues. We spoke about the various projects that we are taking up in a large scale including the projects for the National Games I mentioned about the Social Justice Ministry’s Project that is pending with the Cabinet and he assured that he will take up the matter with Prime Minister also,” said Sangma.
Meghalaya government has been criticised for betraying the people, with Tura MP Agatha Sangma supporting Citizenship (Amendment) Act when it was tabled in the parliament in December.
While Meghalaya is 97% exempted from the ambit of the CAA, yet pressure groups and other political leaders have demanded that it should be 100% and the implementation of ILP should be brought in.
