Police stop the members of HITO to witness the ongoing Autumn Session of the Assembly

Shillong, Sept 15: The Police who are on duty has stop the members of HITO at Harrison Bridge by magistrates accompanied by police not allowing them to witness the ongoing Autumn Session at the Meghalaya Legislative Assmbly thought they have obtain passes.

On the action taken by the police HITO sent a compliant letter to the Deputy Commissioner of East Khasi Hills District un to why they stop though they had legally obtained twenty passes to attend the Autumn Session of the State Assembly on the 15th September 2021.

However, for no rhyme or reason they were stopped on the way at Harrison Bridge by your magistrates accompanied by police. Despite producing the passes as law abiding citizens, we were firmly prevented from proceeding further by police who claimed that they were only following your orders.

In the letter sent to DC HITO claim that in their  preliminary enquiry reveals that even the District administration  were acting upon instructions from the Assembly Commissioner Secretary who in turn said it was under the Speaker’s direction.

HITO has asked  If this is true, then does that mean that the administration has no say in permitting peaceful and silent means of protest in a democracy; and that it can only subserviently bow to the powers that be? Does it indicate that even if your office sees no illegality in citizens venting out their thoughts over current trends of governance, it will have to simply pretend to ignore the truth?

The organsation said that they will again pursue our desire of visiting the Assembly and will apply for permission form the Speaker once again. Perhaps, this time your good self can convince the Speaker that our intentions, however grand or frightful they may appear to him; are purely democratic and peaceful in nature as prescribed by our sacred Constitution. He, being the chosen Custodian of it should know and appreciate it better.
