KSU written to Mr Conrad to take precautionary measures along the IB with Bangladesh

Shillong, May 20: The Khasi Students’ Union has written a letter to the Meghalaya Chief Minister Mr  Conrad K. Sangma, urging the state government to take  precautionary measures along the entire stretch of the Meghalaya-Bangladesh border in view of the Corona Pandemic.

In the letter the  Khasi Students’ Union (KSU) expressed its support to for the commitment of the state government in handling and tackling the overall problems related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The KSU inform the Chief Minister  that the Union itself had taken upon its shoulders as an NGO to assist the Government machineries in many forms. The KSU had been providing relief items throughout the entire length and breadth of the districts of Khasi Hills region and a few Khasi hamlets located in Barak Valley region of Assam.

Similarly, our activists are also assisting the traditional institutions in terms of maintaining social distancing during the lockdown period. Our members from the Units of Delhi, Dehradun, Bangalore and Mangalore had been assisting stranded citizens of the state in other parts of the country.

The KSU would like to bring notice of the Chief Minister for kind perusal and necessary intervention with regards to the areas located along the Bangladesh border.

It has come into our notice through local vernacular newspapers that Bah Himalaya Shangpliang, an MLA of the Mawsynram constituency raised concern over the spread of the COVID-19 in Bangladeshi districts which are adjacent to the border areas of his constituency.

The said MLA has urged for tests to be conducted on our side of the border in his constituency. In support to his concerns, the Union would like to mention that there is partial movement of people from both sides of the border leading to intermingling of people from both sides.

As per information, the corona outbreak in Bangladesh is more or less alarming with around 23,870 active cases and 349 deaths registered so far. Therefore the KSU humbly appeals to you Sir, to conduct tests along the entire border stretch and to closely monitor the movements of people to and fro the state from across the border.

Such an endeavour would likely help to contain the corona outbreak along the border villages which would ultimately prevent its spread to other parts of the state. In fine, the KSU stands with the Government during these times of crisis. The letter was sign by the Genenral Secretary Mr Donald V Thabah.
