KSU demands prevention of sale of land to defense authority

Shillong, July 14: The Khasi Students Union (KSU) has demanded the Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) to come up with an order prohibiting the sale of land to any defence authority.
A delegation of KSU Eastern Border Area and Shillong Mihngi Circle yesterday sought the intervention of the KHADC Chief Executive Member (CEM) Titosstarwell Chyne for necessary action.
This came after information was received that few agents (dalal) are planning to sell land at Wah Swad Umsohlang Khyrim Syiemship which falls under the jurisdiction of the Council to the BSF.
Similarly, there was also a move made to sell land at Lumkseh, Wahmyntait, Mawkduk, Kyrdeng, Lum Diengngan, Lumrit, Mowkynring and other villages.
“The delegation has urged the CEM to look into the matter and ensure this move by such vested interest is not allowed and by coming with an order to inform all the himas and villages that they cannot sell any land to the defence authority,” a statement issued by the Union said.
