The Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) is gearing up to move the Court against the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed between Meghalaya and Assam to resolve six out of 12 areas of dispute between the states.
After attending a meeting of the KHADC boundary committee, on April 26, member of the committee PN Syiem, who is also the leader of the opposition in the Council, said that it has constituted a coordination committee to be headed by the executive member in charge of Elaka, Jambor War, to prepare a report on the MoU before moving the Court.
“I will also be a part of the coordination committee along with the five Himas – Hima Jirang, Hima Nongspung, Hima Mylliem, Hima Jyrngam and Hima Nonglang – which are affected in the first phase of the MoU,” he said.
He further informed that the KHADC will file a petition before the court as soon as the coordination committee’s report is finalised by the Council’s boundary committee. Syiem further said that the Council had no option but to move to the court as the government made it clear that the MoU will not be reviewed.
