HNLC ban: Decision on May 15

SHILLONG:  The Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Tribunal will pronounce its judgment on the extension of ban on HNLC on May 15.
Once pronounced, the HNLC is likely to be banned for five years as per the demand of both the State government and Centre.
The counsel for State Government Ranjan Mukherjee said over phone that the arguments with the Tribunal were completed on April 29 in Delhi.
Moreover, both the State Government and the Centre have made written submissions before the    Judge of the Registrar, Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Tribunal Delhi High Court, New Delhi, AK Pathak on May 5.
Sources said that both the State government and the Centre made a plea for the extension of ban on HNLC. There are demands from several quarters including the political party HSPDP to initiate dialogue with HNLC in the wake of the recent reports that the Centre and the State government were not keen to hold talks with HNLC “since the strength of the outfit dwindled drastically”.
