SHILLONG: A strange demand of Governor RS Mooshahary resulted in a tussle between the organisers and the Governor compelling him to stay away from the programme on Thursday.

Mooshahary stayed away from inaugurating a national seminar sponsored by the Ministry of Home Affairs at NEHU as organisers refused to comply with his demands.

The Governor had demanded that the national anthem be played before and after he speaks at the seminar, and nobody should be allowed to speak after that.

Mooshahary, a former chief of National Security Guard was scheduled to inaugurate the seminar on “Development, Conflicts and Democratic Governance: India’s experience in the North-East”.

Retired IPS officer and lead organiser of the seminar, KS Subramanian expressed his unhappiness over Mooshahary’s demand. “I find this unacceptable because we wanted the Vice Chancellor of NEHU Prof AN Rai to deliver his remarks at the inaugural session,” he said.

He said they could not leave out the Vice Chancellor as the chief of the university was the chairman of the session, and had extended a helping hand in organising the seminar.

It was learnt that Subramanian is four batches senior to Mooshahary in the IPS cadre.

“If the Vice-President is not insisting on national anthems before and after his speeches, why should a Governor do so?” Subramanian questioned.
