The decision was taken at a joint meeting held between the KHADC chief Pyniaid Sing Syiem and KAAC chief Tuliram Ronghang in the presence of Karbi Anglong MP Horen Singh Bey.

The meeting was also attended by the executive members from both the autonomous councils.

Addressing the media after the meeting, Syiem said that the KHADC and KAAC have decided to work together for maintaining peace and harmony among the two communities residing on the border.

Syiem has also expressed concern over the alleged harassment against Khasi-Pnar people residing in the Block II areas.

“Since yesterday, I had already appraised the KAAC chief on the matter and requested his intervention to ensure Khasi-Pnar people do not face any kind of harassment especially when the two state governments are in the process of settling the boundary dispute,” he said.

On the demand to retransfer the Block II areas to Meghalaya, KHADC chief, however, said that discussion by the two state governments on the matter is on.

“Therefore, the two district councils have decided to work together. We will listen to the voice of the people from both communities before giving our suggestion to the regional committees of both the States,” he said.

Meanwhile, Syiem informed that both district councils have decided to work together to preserve and promote the rich culture and heritage of the two communities. (PTI)
