Ready to Challenge Status Quo Order on Harijan Colony: Meghalaya CM Conrad Sangma

On Monday, Chief Minister Conrad K. Sangma stated that the state administration was prepared to dispute any order made by various bodies to maintain the status quo on Harijan Colony’s transfer from Iew Mawlong.

“We have made it clear that any status quo or other ruling issued by the various commissions on this matter would be challenged in court”. We are prepared to challenge them in the High Court or even the Supreme Court,” Sangma stated in response to the National Commission for Minorities’ judgment urging the state government to maintain the status quo in the matter as decided by the Meghalaya High Court on April 9, 2021.

Sangma responded to Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa’s announcement that he will take up the ‘eviction’ matter with the Union Home Ministry by saying that the state administration had decided to take this action after three-and-a-half years of thorough research.

“Whatever steps we take from here on out will be legally sound.” As a result, whatever decision and action the government takes will be based on adequate paperwork and legal sanction,” he explained.

He further stated that the Meghalaya administration will raise the issue with specific Punjab government figures.

The CM further stated that the government owns the land under the provisions of the leasing agreement with the Syiem of Mylliem.
