Congress leader Ampareen Lyngdoh said that she foresees the status quo in the Harijan Colony issue, stating that no court of law will be a silent spectator to violation of human rights.
Lyngdoh said that solution would not be easy but it is achievable.
Making it clear that she does not want to take sides, Lyngdoh maintained that no court of law will be a silent spectator when there is going to be a violation of the rights of any individual sitting on either side of the fence.
The senior Congress leader further stated that she has no idea what the government has in its mind to solve the Harijan colony issue.
She said that she is not privy to information and is oblivious of the committee’s recommendations as the document has not been made public.
She hoped the government will be able to handle the situation delicately without condemning anyone or taking sides.
She also stressed on dialogues involving communities.
“Does Meghalaya want to see a communal clash just before the 2023 elections?” she cautioned.
