SHILLONG, MAY 12 | Publish Date: 5/12/2020 9:52:10 AM IST

 The Federation of Khasi States has strongly urged citizens and villages to cooperate and consider quarantine options for all returnees to Meghalaya and expressed its full support to the call given by the Synjuk Ki Rangbah Shnong as reported in the media on May 12. 

It may also be recalled that a similar request had been made by the Federation of Khasi States to the State Government on  May 1  to draw up a roadmap for quarantining all returnees to Meghalaya and the FKS strongly supported and encouraged the citizens, especially families of the returnees to discuss with  the village Dorbar Shnong to utilize  schools, colleges, community halls, including churches and church assets, as quarantine locations to quarantine returnees in their respective villages.
A press release by Chairman, Ka Dorbar Ki Khlieh Nongsynshar and Adviser & Spokesperson, Federation of Khasi States Bah John F Kharshiing stated that  inconvenience is a small price to pay for the safety of the family members and the community and the state.
The release lamented that it would have been ‘much helpful if the State Government had put in place and considered the roadmap for quarantine to the last mile which is in the neighbourhood, community and villages.’
The Federation of Khasi States added there still time for such efforts if citizens come forward and cooperate and discuss with the Dorbar Shnong to make such arrangements for the benefit of their own family by requesting all returnees to quarantine themselves for a short period in specified places within the village so as to effectively combat COVID-19.
Federation of Khasi States further urged citizens of Meghalaya to consider the suggestions urgently as part of its preparation to welcome the thirteen thousand odd returnees coming from all over India to Meghalaya.
It also urged  all the Syiem, Lyngdoh, Sirdar, Dolloi, Syiem Raid, Lyngdoh Raid, Sordar Raid, Rangbah Shnong, Sordar Shnong, Myntri Shnong, and Council of Nokma to take steps to create awareness on the importance and benefit from facilitating a quarantine location in the villages.
