Need evidence to back claim on land: Chyne tells stakeholders

Chyne also said that the KHADC had maintained that the government should take the consent of landowners and Himas before signing of the MOU. The CEM also said that the district council is yet to receive any official communication from the Himas and landowners what they want from them.

The Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) Chief Executive Member (CEM), Titosstarwell Chyne, on Sunday said that the stakeholders, who have threatened to move the Supreme Court over the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed by the governments of Meghalaya and Assam to resolve the boundary dispute in six areas of differences in the first phase, should furnish evidence and documents.

“We need to have evidence and documents to back our claim before the apex court. Therefore, we need to properly discuss this matter before being a party to the move of the Hima,” Chyne said.
It may be mentioned that Hima Jirang, Hima Nongspung and Hima Mylliem have threatened to move the SC against the government if their demand is not met. The traditional heads of the three Himas said that they are not happy with the government’s decision to hand over their land to Assam as a part of the agreement and alleged that their consent was not taken by the regional committees before drafting the MoU.
The CEM said that earlier, the Council had written to the state government after stakeholders had opposed the MoU.
Chyne also said that the KHADC had maintained that the government should take the consent of landowners and Himas before signing of the MOU. The CEM also said that the district council is yet to receive any official communication from the Himas and landowners what they want from them.
“But we will have to discuss being a part of the move of the Hima to appeal to the Supreme Court,” Chyne said.
