Pro-ILP groups to stage demonstration on October 4


SHILLONG: The 13 pro- Inner Line Permit (ILP) organisations will hold a sit-in demonstration on October 4 in Shillong and Tura to pressure the state government to expedite the setting up of entry/exit points in priority areas.

The FKJGP president, Wellbirth Rani said the 13 organisations had a meeting on Friday at the office of Khasi Students’ Union (KSU) to discuss the pending work of setting up entry/exit points. He said, “Even if permission to hold the sit-in demonstration is not granted, we will still go ahead.”

He argued that till date the state government had not been able to set up entry/exit points and asserted that they didn’t fully understand the functioning of District Task Force which is designed to check illegal immigrants

Rani said the District Task Force had not been constituted in some districts. “We have been waiting for the implementation of entry/exit points. The KSU has also sent a letter to the Chief Minister (Conrad Sangma) to discuss the status of entry/exit point. We haven’t received any confirmation till date.”
