Meghalaya HM assures his govt’s commitment in fighting crimes and militancy
The home minister of the newly elected government of Meghalaya, James K Sangma, has assured his government’s commitment in fighting crimes and militancy.
Meghalaya is one of the states in the North Eastern region which is suffering due to the presence of the militancy.
With a new government in power in the state, and with the support of the central government which is very keen to eliminate all kinds of anti-national activities, Meghalaya, it seems, may attain a militancy-free status in near future.
Last day, at least eight militants, who were members of the infamous militant group GNLA, surrendered before the law, in a sense before the state government.
Though the move is a natural follow-up action as these militants were left with no other options other than surrendering before law as their commander-in-chief, Sohan D Shira, had been killed a couple of weeks ago, the newly elected government considers it as the victory of their regime.
Anyway, the state government has appreciated the church for their role in convincing the militancy to take up the path of peace, instead of violence.
The North-Eastern state of Meghalaya has enormous potential to grow, especially in the field of tourism. Experts say that once the government successfully eliminate militancy, the state’s crime rate will fall naturally.
There is no doubt in the fact that the fall in the crime rate helps state to make maximum use of their potential.
