HYC survey shows 90% workforce in Jirang non-tribals

Correspondent

Nongpoh, March 24: The Ri Bhoi Sepngi unit of the Hynniewtrep Youth Council (HYC) today expressed concern over illegal migration of labourers in the district and blamed the authority for its laxity in checking the influx.

Speaking to the media today, the HYC unit president Alfred Lyngdoh said almost 90 per cent of the skilled and unskilled workers in Jirang C&RD block and its adjacent areas are non-tribals. This the organisation found out through a survey.

Lyngdoh said the survey was done after the organisation received complaints from local residents on unavailability of jobs.

Lyngdoh asked the authorities concerned to look into the matter at the earliest.
