Meghalaya home minister H.D.R. Lyngdoh Sunday expressed optimism that more Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA) rebels would surrender to end their armed struggle for a sovereign ‘Garoland’. “We are expecting more of them (GNLA rebels) to toe the line (surrender) as some of them have realised for choosing the wrong path,” Lyngdoh said.
On Saturday, the tribal Garo rebel group, which operates in the three districts of Garo Hills in Western part of Meghalaya, suffered a major blow when its general secretary, Gregory A Sangma surrendered.
Gregory’s bodyguards - Goran D. Sangma and Jamin Sangma also surrendered before Sylvester Nongtynger, the police chief of East Garo Hills. “Gregory claimed that many more cadres are on the line of surrendering because of the torture and harassment at the GNLA training centre by the instructor namely Mingran Sangma alias Belbong,” Nongtynger said.
