 SHILLONG: The FKJGP has removed the restrictions on entry into Mawjymbuin Cave in Mawsynram following a meeting convened by Chief Executive Member of KHADC, Pynshngainlang N Syiem on Monday.

The decision was taken at a hearing convened by the CEM in his office chamber here on Monday which was attended by the acting Syiem of Hima Mawsynram Amos Malngiang, Rangbah Shnong of Mawsynram Artowell Kharchandy and members of the FKJGP East Khasi Hills and Mawsynram Circle.

The FKJGP Mawsynram circle had recently imposed a ban on religious rituals in the cave. They were alleging that the acting Syiem of Hima Mawsynram had issued an NOC allowing religious ceremonies at the Mawjymbuin cave.

Talking to reporters after the hearing, the CEM said he had decided to hand over the matter to the concerned Dorbar Shnong since it was the responsibility of the Dorbar Shnong to take care of the tourist spot.

The KHADC has also decided to given full authority to the Dorbar Shnong to decide on whether they wanted to allow religious ceremonies at the cave.

Meanwhile, the FKJGP claimed that the Rangbah Shnong of Mawsynram has assured them that he would not allow any religious activity inside the cave.
