Poor water supply

 

Editor,

It has been observed that the locality of Nongrimmaw, Laitumkhrah, receives very poor water supply from PHE (GSWSS). As a resident of the above mentioned area request the MLA of the Laitumkhrah constituency to please consider our case since many of the residents of Nongrimmaw are poor and cannot afford to buy water from private water sellers.

Yours etc.,

Appointment anomalies

Editor,

Appointment for the post of District Inclusive Education Coordinator at the office of the District Mission Coordinator, SSA RI Bhoi District Nongpoh was made without advertisement/interview since 2012. It is a surprise for all interested candidates. Hence the candidates who are eligible to apply for the said post have the right to know as to why this opportunity has been deprived to them. The Higher Authority of Education Department SEMAM (SSA) should take serious action and find out the circumstances leading to filling of the above post without proper advertisement and interview. In fact, the above post should be advertised and recruitment made as per RTE norms.

Yours etc.,

D. Lyngdoh,

Ri Bhoi District.

 

 

No more Block I & II

Editor,

 With reference to the boundary disputes between Meghalaya and Assam I wonder why this issue should keep on haunting the society and give sleepless nights to the political regimes of both the states since 1972 till date without any solution in sight. We have heard about meetings, dialogues, etc between the different levels of political and bureaucratic functionaries and the issue has also been made used by political aspirants to get votes. In order to solve the issue once and for all I suggest that the Central Government should acquire the entire stretch of land, say Block I, block II, Langpih, etc. with suitable compensation to the land owners and rehabilitate those affected by the acquisition. The land can then be transferred to the defence establishments.  This would end the protracted quarrel between the two states and ensure that  people of both the states reap the benefits.

On Pine Mount School

Editor,

Apropos to the letter written by B Lyngdoh ( ST Sept 16, 2015), I would like to state that since the implementation of the RTE Act, Pine Mount School has been classed in the same category like other government schools where education is given free of cost. So, one can very well imagine the standard when one does not have to pay the cost. As it is, today Pine Mount School is to cater only to students from BPL families and economically weaker sections of the society who cannot afford to pay school fees. But since well to do families are monopolizing the admission process they should be able to provide all the necessary stationeries to their wards and be patient to bear with the constraints otherwise they can take their wards to other schools and pay the tuition fees.

Notice to Sanbor Shullai

Editor,  

Apropos the news item  about service of notice by MUDA for violation of building rules ( ST Sept 19, 2015), I would like to state that initially  the land documents for the Raid Laban Social Sports & Cultural Organization (RLSSCO) was in the name of the then General Secretary of the organization, Mr George Arthur Warjri. Now it appears that the said land has been usurped by Sanbor Shullai who has constructed a commercial complex at the site. Does this mean the said plot of land has been transferred to Mr Sanbor Shullai ? If yes, under what circumstances? For the general public I may point out here that the said land is a government revenue plot leased to the organization under certain terms and conditions. Since the RLSSCO has committed an illegal act by violating the building Bye-laws and also for not utilizing the land for the purpose for which it was allotted to the organization, it is a fit case for the Deputy Commissioner to take action by resuming the said plot of land back to the government under the leased conditions and the provisions of the Assam Land Revenue Regulation, 1886 ( as adopted by Meghalaya).
