Meghalaya Governor RS Mooshahary today said that developments in Bangladesh against militant outfits have impacted the morale of State-based militant outfits. In his conventional address on the opening day of the Budget Session of the State Legislative Assembly here, Mooshahary said that developments in the neighbouring country against militant groups has affected outfits like the Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC) and others.
He also pointed out that “the security establishment of the State has acted swiftly to break up and contain activities of the new outfit Hynniewtrep Liberation Front (HLF) in Khasi Hills, and Liberation for A’chik Elite Force (LAEF) in the Garo Hills.” Activities of local militant groups like the HNLC and A’chik National Volunteer’s Council (ANVC) have been substantially controlled, the Governor said.
Referring to the ongoing peace dialogue with the ANVC, Mr Mooshahary said, “The continuing suspension of operations’ agreement has created an enabling environment for peace.” Mooshahary expressed concern on recent developments of the formation of new militant groups in Garo Hills and the activities of Assam-based militant groups along the Meghalaya-Assam border.
The Governor also highlighted that the State’s plan size for 2010-11 has been proposed at Rs.2310 crores while the plan size for 2009-10 was revised.
