The Central Working Committee (CWC) of People’s Democratic Front (PDF) have urged upon the State Government to immediately pass an ordinance to exempt the Scheduled areas from the purview of the MUDA building bye-laws.
“The ordinance should also empower the Khasi Autonomous District Councils (KHADC) to formulate its own building permission and regulations in the Scheduled areas,” PDF chairman Pynshngain N Syiem informed after the meeting of the CWC here on Saturday.
He also urged upon the KHADC to start the ground work so that they can start the exercise of issuing of building permission once the Government passed the ordinance.
Meanwhile, he said that the party is happy with the proposal on the amendment of the Sixth Scheduled of the Constitution since the Joint Secretary of Home Ministry (NE) Satyendra Garg has assured to incorporate the sections for exemption of the Central Laws in areas under the Autonomous District Councils (ADCs) in Meghalaya.
He also informed that they have also decided to strengthen the party organisation in view of the Lok Sabha and ADCs elections in the State.
