SHILLONG, May 26: A group of protesters, numbering around 20, gathered outside the residence of Cabinet Minister and UDP working president Paul Lyngdoh at Lumkshaid, Lower Mawprem, on Friday and held a demonstration while questioning his silence on the demand for a review of the job reservation policy.
The protesters carried placards with writings like Ngi jied ia phi ban long Khla ym ban long shrieh (We elect leaders to behave like tigers and not like monkeys) and Phi dei u nongialam ka People’s Rally Against Corruption (PRAC), mynta phi dung kylla ia ngi bad pruk bad prak (You were the leader of PRAC, now you are stabbing us).
The protesters wanted to know if Lyngdoh will continue to remain silent despite having the support of the masses.
It may be mentioned that similar protests have been reported outside the residences of MLAs in different constituencies including Pynursla, Mylliem, Nongstoin, Amlarem, and Mawsynram.
The protests erupted after VPP president Ardent Miller Basaiawmoit began his indefinite hunger strike on Tuesday to demand a review of the reservation policy.
