Meghalaya Govt caught in tight situation following promises to upgrade Ranikor

By Our Reporter, TNT News | Shillong, June 22, 2018:

The NPP-led Meghalaya Democratic Government (MDA) is caught in a peculiar and tight situation ever since the announcement of the creation of the Ranikor Civil Sub Division.

Now, there are various delegations who are meeting the Government to urge for creation of the Civil Sub Division in their respective areas.

Pushing forward this demand to create the civil sub division, an organisation from Mawsynram met Deputy Chief Minister, Prestone Tynsong today to impress on the need to upgrade the Mawsynram Community and Rural Development Block into a Civil Sub Division.

Addressing a press conference after meeting the Deputy Chief Minister today, All Mawsynram Constituency People's Conference (AMCPC) president, Gilbert Kharraswai said that they have urged Deputy Chief Minister to upgrade the Mawsynram to a Civil Sub Division.

"The Mawsynram Community and Rural Development Block is one of the oldest in the State. It was created prior the inception of the State. It came into being even before such administration was created in Mawkyrwat or Ranikor," Kharraswai said.

Furthermore, he stated that Mawkyrwat has got the district while Ranikor would soon get the Civil Sub Division. ""We strongly feel that the Government should consider the demand for creation of the Civil Sub Division in Mawsynram," he said.

According to AMCPC president, the creation of the Civil Sub Division would bring the administration closer to the people and it would greatly benefit the people from Mawsynram especially those residing in the border villages with Bangladesh.

"The people are facing great difficultly to come all the way to Shillong for any official work. With majority of the people of the area being daily wagers, they cannot afford to come all the way to the State capital to get their work done," he said.

Meanwhile, AMCPC president also informed that they have also apprised the Government on the need to repair the road along the Hatmawdon-Dangar upto Trongpleng which has been unattended for the past 20 years.
