SHILLONG: The ANVC (B) on Saturday praised the Centre for ensuring development in Garo Hills thanks to the intervention of militant groups and downplayed the role of the State Government..

In a statement issued here on Saturday, the ANVC (B) chairman Rimpu Marak alleged that the State government wanted to maintain Garo Hills as a disturbed area to provide special powers to the police which resulted in atrocities against people, framing of false cases, killings and general insecurity in several areas of Garo Hills.

“Meghalaya has seen development, up gradations and changes in the last couple of years only because of the Garo revolutionaries who chose to walk the extreme path to highlight the ground realities of the state”, the ANVC(B) chairman claimed.

According to Marak, when the ANVC scaled down from the statehood demand, the Centre took utmost interest to meet the outfit’s charter of demands and fair enough, “most of what we asked for were recommended and centrally sanctioned through various departments.”

He said that last two years, Meghalaya had seen development through centrally sponsored schemes.
