In the general body meeting, the house also expressed its concern over the blatant overcharging of Commercial Vehicle Fare despite the statutory order by Secretary and Commissioner, Transport, Govt of Meghalaya.

The house expressed its disappointment over the issue of not adhering the order and term the DTO of West Garo Hills ‘Spineless’ and incapacitated because of reasons’ best known to them. He must take stringent action against the defaulters’. Some credibility of your position should be maintained.

The house also observed that the imcumbent Officer is shying away from the mandated duty and thereby ‘Dereliction of Duties’ which attracts certain provisions  under the law. If DTO cannot implement the Order, AYWO will have to take its own course for the well being of our people and he will be responsible for any event that transpired thereafter.

Nevertheless, AYWO being a responsible Organisation, will submit its ultimatum officially seeking cancellation of license of the defaulters’ next week and will request DTO to act before its too late.The President of Dalu Regional Branch Shri Sachin Marak, pitched for the creation of  Dalu Civil Subdivision and informed the house that as many as more than one lakh people were residing under Dalu C&RD. Block cannot cater to the needs of huge population and it is high time to seek the justice for the People of Dalu  and urged the General Body also to take up the matter with appropriate authority.

Then, the house unanimously decided to accept the proposal and resolved to pursue the demand which is genuine and needs to be addressed at the earliest and will help DCSDC(Dalu Civil Sub Division Demand Committee) in any possible manner. Leaders’ of AYWO will meet CM of Meghalaya along with the leaders’ of DCSDC after MP elections and press for the demand which is birthright of Dalu since Dalu C&RD is one the oldest and most neglected part of Meghalaya. d) The house also decided to hold tge 9th Annual Conference of AYWO in Anogre Regional Branch in the month of May, whereby, multiple issues will be listed out for discussions including the delay in setting up of Entry Exit Point in Garo Hills.

The house also decided to meet the respective DCs of NGH, SWGH and WGH and enquire about the status. As committed in the meeting with the Chief Minister, the govt should be more pro active on the issue of influx. We do hope that the Conrad Sangma will ‘walk the talk’ and set up Entry Exit Point at the earliest.
