No decision yet on camps for ANVC-B: Govt

SHILLONG: The State Home Department is yet to decide on the allotment of designated camps to ANVC-B.

There were reports of confrontation by ANVC-B as the militant outfit wanted a camp in West Khasi Hills or South West Khasi Hills whereas several pressure groups from these districts opposed the move.

“The Government has not decided anything, and we have not discussed the matter,” Home Minister Roshan Warjri said on Monday.

The Home department had earlier asked the deputy commissioners of South West Khasi Hills and North Garo Hills to identify suitable area for setting up of one camp each for ANVC-B.

Recently, the South West Khasi Hills District Administration told the Government that land was not available to set up a camp for ANVC-B.

However, ANVC-B offered to provide land for the camp and also asserted that the militant outfit would not withdraw its demand to set up a camp in South West Khasi Hills.

It was first the Government which had proposed to set up a camp in South West Khasi Hills.
