CoMSO volunteers to assist DoI for implementing “own ILP”

Shillong, Feb 11: The Confederation of Meghalaya Social Organization (CoMSO) will deploy its volunteers to check against illegal immigrants from Wednesday as part of its direct action to implement its “own Inner Line Permit (ILP)” in the state.

“We are sending our volunteers to all infiltration check gates to assist the Directorate of Infiltration (DoI) in checking against illegal immigrants entering the state,” CoMSO chairman Robertjune Kharjahrin said on Tuesday.

He said the CoMSO will set up its own check points in areas where there are no infiltration check gates.

On the warning issued by the state police against such checking, Kharjahrin said that the CoMSO had already informed the state government through a memorandum submitted to the chief minister Conrad K Sangma recently.

The CoMSO has decided to implement the ILP on its own as a mark of protest against the delay of the Centre to response to the ILP resolution passed by the Meghalaya Legislative Assembly on December 19, last year.

Kharjahrin said that volunteers would be sent to 14 check points in Khasi Jaiñtia Hills and 9 in Garo Hills.

These include Byrni check point (CP), Ratachera CP, Umtyrna CP, Aradonga CP, Iew mawroh Jirang CO ,Umsiang CP , Saphai CP ,Khanduli CP , Pynursla Border CP , Dawki CP ,Ryngku CP ,Ranikor – Balat area CP , Borsora – moheshkola area CP , Shella border area CP , Dainadubi CP , Nengkhra CP , Siju CP , Dimapara CP , Sibburi CP , Dalu CP , Garuspara CP , Mahadeo CP and Bajengdoba CP.

Volunteers will be issued batches and identity cards.
