This came after the government had issued the invitation letter only hours before the meeting.

 

In a statement, KHNAM president Pyndap Saibon said,  “It is very unprofessional for the government to issue a letter hours before the scheduled meeting, this is however not important to us but a mere observation. The party has decided that we will not be attending the said meeting.”

He informed that the party had already sent a letter to the law minister and chairman of the committee wherein “we have conveyed our stand that, there is a need to relook the State Reservation Policy 1972 and its subsequent O.M and also to ensure that Roster Registers be maintained with effect from May 2022 so that implementation of the Roster System can be Prospective”.

 

“We stand by the two demands made by the party and we will not compromise either of them. Therefore attending a meeting for discussion does not arise,” Saibon said while adding, “We do not need to discuss anymore but a resolution from the government on both matters is what we need.”
