Amid the demand by Garo Hills based pressure groups calling for the ouster of Garo Hills Autonomous District Council CEM Rakesh Sangma, the West Garo Hills district administration today called a meeting of the pressure group leaders and MDCs.

However, the meeting ended on an inconclusive note after none of the MDCs turned up for the meeting, informed FKJGP’s Garo Hills unit president Pritam Arengh.

Speaking to Northeast Live Arengh said that the pressure groups were requested to suspend their agitation for some time while a decision is taken on the CEM issue, however, the NGO leaders turned down the request.

The meeting was held at a time when the pressure groups have launched a series of protests to demand the ouster of GHADC CEM Rakesh Sangma accusing him of not following Garo customs.
