Assembly Speaker and president of the United Democratic Party (UDP), Metbah Lyngdoh, has said that he will raise the concerns of the border residents over the signing of memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma.
Acknowledging that concerns have been raised by different groups on the deal, Lyngdoh said he will discuss the MoU along with other issues with the chief minister.
“However, it is up to him and the government to examine the matter raised by different groups,” the UDP president said.
Lyngdoh, however, declined to give a definite answer when asked about the need to revise the MoU, saying he needs to hear from both sides first because the positions of one organisation or political party and other groups will differ.
He also said the UDP will stand for what is right with regard to the boundary issue.
