 SHILLONG: The consortium of pro-ILP activists have intensified their agitation by calling for road blockade in the State on four consecutive nights beginning from September 10 to 13.

The night road blockade would be effective from 7 pm till 5 am of the following day on all four days.

“We have decided to intensify our agitation since Chief Minister Dr Mukul Sangma continues to remain adamant to the demands of the NGOs for the implementation of the ILP,” KSU vice president Frederick Kharmawphlang said on Sunday, while making it clear that they would announce the next phase of their agitation on September 13.

While urging the people to continue their support to the ongoing agitation of the NGOs, Kharmawphlang said that they would continue with their ‘struggle’ till the Government fulfills their demand.

“We remain firm on our stand that the only solution for checking the problem of influx and illegal immigrant is the immediate implementation of the ILP. We can no longer be mere spectators while the local indigenous people are being swamped by the people from outside,” the KSU leader said.

Administration on alert: East Khasi Hills Deputy Commissioner Sanjay Goyal on Sunday said that measures are being put into place to ensure safety and security in view of the proposed night road blockade scheduled from September 10-13.

Terming the night blockade as a ‘stumbling block’, Goyal said, “Tight security will be put in place to see that no untoward incident takes place and no citizen is hurt or attacked.”
