Shillong: The issue of relocation of the Sweeper’s Colony from Them Iew Mawlong in Shillong has been a long-pending issue. In a new development, Meghalaya urban affairs minister Hamletson Dohling informed that a report will be submitted to the High-Level Committee (HLC) on Friday.
The High-Level Committee had constituted a sub-committee to be headed by Dohling. The objective of the formation of the sub-committee is to discuss differences between the state government and the Hima Mylliem concerning the disputed land at Sweeper’s Colony.
Dohling informed that sub-committee is ready with the report and will finally be submitted to the HLC on Friday.
When asked what the findings of the report, Dohling said that further details would be given once the report is presented to the HLC. The HLC would review the report and further present it to the state government.
“The role of sub-committee is to find out issues which cannot be discussed in the HLC. Three meetings were held and the issues were discussed in the sub-committee meeting. Acting Syiem of Hima Mylliem and members of the District Council and other officials were also part of the sub-committee meeting,” said Dohling.
Earlier, Meghalaya deputy chief minister Prestone Tynsong said that the HLC will decide how to move forward with the issue of Sweeper’s Colony only after receiving the report from the sub-committee.
