Shillong, January 05: In the event of the publication of the draft NRC in Assam, KHNAM fear of spill over of migrants from Assam to Meghalaya. To prevent illegal migrants to enter the state of Meghalaya KHNAM today has submitted memorandum to the chief Minister dr mukul Sangma seek his immediate intervention on this regard.

The publication of the Draft NRC have sparked possibility of illegal immigrants from Assam to spread or take shelter in to neighbouring state of Assam especially with the statement of Assam finance minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, who is also in charge of the citizenship register, that illegal immigrants will be detected and depot.

Meghalaya has been a soft target to illegal influx due to the long distance of interstate border between both the states.  The KHNAM State Youth Wing is looking at the matter with great concern for the welfare of the indigenous citizen of the state, therefore, due to the demanding situation strict vigil of border area and outpost and checking of illegal immigrants needs to be on the top priority of the Government.

Additional Forces also needs to be deployed at these border areas especially at area termed as disputed area between two states. The infiltration check gated needs to be provided with additional forces and strict Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) needs to be frame for effectiveness of these infiltration check gates. The Government also needs to issue a notification warding all contractors and employers in the state to restrain from hiring cheap labour, without proper authentication, which could compromise the security of the state.
