The Confederation of Meghalaya Social Organisation or CoMSO has demanded the High-Level Committee on Harijan Colony to expedite things with regard to the issue of relocation of the settlers of the colony and submit its final report to the state government at the earliest.

CoMSO Secretary Roy Kupar Synrem on Wednesday said that even after two years since the HLC was constituted under the chairmanship of Deputy Chief Minister, the committee has not been able to submit its final recommendation to the state government.

Insisting that there is a strong demand from the people of the state to relocate the settlers of the colony, Synrem said that it is high time the HLC submit its final recommendation as soon as possible.

It may be mentioned, earlier an altercation had broken out in the colony that spiraled into an unrest that lasted for days. Strong demand for the relocation of settlers emerged thereafter and the HLC was constituted to look into the issue and submit its recommendations to the state government.
