Meghalaya: ‘UDP committed biggest blunder by promoting Conrad Sangma as CM’- says proscribed HNLC


TNT News | September 30, 2018

While criticising the United Democratic Party (UDP) for supporting NPP leader Conrad K Sangma for the CM’s chair, the proscribed Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC) said that the decision of the UDP was the most amusing thing to happen.


“It is a matter of surprise instead of promoting our own people for the Chief Minister post, this promoting of Conrad K Sangma as the CM is the biggest blunder committed by the UDP,” HNLC publicity secretary Saiñkupar Nongtraw said in a statement issued here today.

While referring to the the division among the regional forces in the State, he said that this division has allowed AT Mondal to become the first non-indigenous speaker in the history of the state.

Meanwhile, the HNLC also asked what assurance the government can give to the outfit if its cadres surrender.

 “We have seen what happened with the ANVC, its cadres surrendered with all their arms and it was also disbanded but what was amusing is that Agreed Text for Settlement was signed on September 24, 2014 but it ended only in promises by the government even after four years,” Nongtraw added.

The HNLC said that the peace pact was just an eye wash and the leaders of the ANVC were misled by both the state as well as the central government.

The proscribed Khasi outfit was ready to give up arms if the government includes the agenda of sovereignty in the peace talks.

“Peace does not only mean end of bloodshed but it also means being free economically, in society and also politically,” Nongtraw added.

Tussle over Para 12A of 6th Schedule: State Govt vs District Council

SHILLONG | May 19, 2019:

By Fabian Lyngdoh

The legal maxim, “ignorance of law excuses no one” (ignorantia legis neminem excusat) is a principle holding that a person would not escape liability for violating that law merely because he/she is unaware of its existence. The doctrine assumes that a law has been promulgated, and citizens are supposed to know, when it is published through recognized procedures. This implies that not only the lawyers, but every citizen in a State is assumed and expected to know or be aware of the existence of the law. Registered lawyers are persons authorized by law to take up the profession of advocating people in litigations in the court of law as an economic activity, a trade or a business. But the law requires that all should know the law, and none is excused for not knowing it. With this note, I present in this article my analysis of the disputed Para 12A of the Sixth Schedule to the Constitution of India for initiating further debate and discussion among the lawyers as well as among the general public alike.
