Meghalaya chief minister Mukul Sangma today said that his government is examining the issue of declaring Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA) militant outfit as banned organisation. Sangma was reacting to a query if the government proposed to impose on the GNLA, which has unleashed a reign of terror in the three districts of Garo Hills.
Asked if the GNLA is receiving any political patronage, Sangma said, ""It will be disastrous for those who are sympathizers and are hand-in-glove. I want to send a clear message to the patronisers that the government has the capacity to find out all information."  He however, appealed to citizens of the state to support the government in its fight against such forces, which are against the spirit of civilized democracy. "they (militants)  are criminals indulging extortion and killings," he said.
On the emergence of smaller outfits, Sangma said the government is trying to understand as to why there is emergence of militant outfits one after another in different names. He said the GNLA was an offshoot of the A'chik National Volunteer Council (ANVC), which is now under a tripartite ceasefire agreement with the State and the Centre and deserters of the Meghalaya Police.
