Govt sends headmen ordinance 2nd time to Guv

SHILLONG: The ordinance to empower headmen okayed by the state cabinet was sent twice to the Meghalaya  Governor for his assent.
After the Cabinet on May 11 approved the Meghalaya Local Administration (Empowering the traditional institutions, bodies and headmen) Ordinance 2015, it was sent to the Governor for approval.
But the Governor returned it citing procedural flaws, an official source said, adding that the suggestion was to get the Bill vetted by the Advocate General.
For the second time on Wednesday, the government sent the ordinance to the Governor after incorporating the suggestions made by the Governor, the source added.
The state government is still awaiting the approval from the Governor.
