Crisis in Laitumkhrah Dorbar worries MLA
SHILLONG, Sep 1: The recent decision of the Acting Syiem of Mylliem to revoke the appointment letter of the three Rangbah Shnongs of Laitumkhrah Dorbar Pyllun has become a cause of concern for East Shillong MLA Ampareen Lyngdoh.
Speaking to The Shillong Times, the local MLA observed that every Dorbar has its own ups and downs and Laitumkhrah Dorbar Pyllun is no different.
“This is a phase that will pass and I am confident that our elders will sort this conflict out,” Lyngdoh, who is a resident of Laitumkhrah, said.
She further said that she is looking forward to active participation of residents in the election of the next dorbar meeting.
Earlier, Acting Syiem of Mylliem Ainam Manik Syiem had revoked the Sanad (appointment letter) of the three Rangbah Shnongs of Laitumkhrah — GM Bruce Sawkmie, SB Nongdhar and Andrew A Jyrwa.
Syiem issued the order revoking the Sanad following a complaint by a section of residents of the locality that the headmen failed to convene the meeting of the Dorbar Shnong for election of a new executive committee despite it having reached the end of its term.
“All the three can no longer perform the duties of the Rangbah Shnong immediately following the issuance of the order,” the Acting Syiem of Mylliem had said.
Interestingly, Syiem had also appointed Jyrwa as the Acting Rangbah Shnong of Laitumkhrah while directing him to convene the meeting of the Dorbar Shnong within a period of one month.
Meanwhile, the other two Rangbah Shnongs (Sawkmie and Nongdhar) had decided to seek the intervention of KHADC Chief Executive Member Titosstarwell Chyne as they are aggrieved by the action on the part of the acting Syiem.
Meanwhile, the Acting Rangbah Shnong of Laitumkhrah had said that there are reasons for the acting Syiem of Mylliem to revoke the Sanad.
