The response was given to a zero-hour notice by UDP legislator, Mayralborn Syiem from Nongpoh, regarding a reported decision by a lesser-known radical Hindu group to start a poster campaign targeting missionary schools in Assam.

CM Sangma assured the safety of residents along the inter-state border, mentioning plans to instruct Superintendents of Police and the Meghalaya DGP to increase patrolling efforts and reassure the public. He emphasised the importance of verification before reacting to any situation.

A relatively unknown radical Hindu organization, named ‘Sanmilita Sanatan Samaj’, has initiated a poster campaign in Assam. The campaign targets missionary schools across the state, demanding the removal of Christian symbols and churches from their premises.

The group also insists on the cessation of religious activities within these educational institutions. The posters outlining these demands were found affixed on the walls of missionary-run schools in several towns including Guwahati, Barpeta, Jorhat, and Sivasagar.
