Mukul urges government to file criminal case against KAAC chief

Correspondent

Leader of Opposition and Trinamool Congress (TMC) legislator, Dr. Mukul Sangma on Thursday asked the state government to register a criminal case against Chief Executive Member (CEM) of Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC), Tuliram Ronghang for inciting violence.
The KAAC chief had claimed that the Khasi-Pnar villagers living at Mukroh village in West Jaintia Hills district bordering Assam’s West Karbi Anglong district are “illegal settlers”.
“It is an incitement; it is instigation to people who are empowered with the so-called authority, that is what is emboldening their law enforcing agencies. So a case must be registered by the Meghalaya government for inciting the kind of lawlessness,” the former Chief Minister said.
Sangma claimed that Ronghang was trying to add fuel to the fire following the gunning down of six persons that include five Pnar villagers and one Assam forest guard at Mukroh village on November 22.
