Former Meghalaya Assembly Deputy Speaker and BJP legislator,  Sanbor Shullai on Sunday wrote to Assam minister Himanta Biswa Sarma seeking his intervention into the withdrawal of an FIR filed by Cachar BJP Youth Morcha president Amitesh Chakraborty against Khasi Student's Union (KSU) president Lambokstar Marngar.

Shullai has requested Cachar BJP Youth Morcha president Amitesh Chakraborty to withdraw the FIR filed against Marngar in connection with the incident at lchamati after the murder of Khasi Students Union (KSU) member Lurshai Hynniewta.

 “The matter is a state affair and involvement or influence of elements from outside the state is not required. The matter is a local concern and should be best resolved peacefully by involving all the stakeholders of the state," Shullai's letter read. 

He said the lchamati incident “still continues to be the centre of attention and the reason for the current unpleasant and unwanted developments.”

“An incident like this, that unfortunately happened at Ichamati should have been prevented and avoided at all costs. This has led to an uneasy calm in the city of Shillong,” Shullai mentioned.

Shullai informed Sarma that all genuine non-tribals of the state have always been supportive of all local issues and have been living in peace with the tribals for generations.

Stating that the Northeastern states are all raising their concerns for the influx of illegal migrants, Shullai said: “A misunderstanding on such fragile issue can jeopardize the peace among the generation old genuine non-tribals of the state.”

The non-tribals of the state have been living in harmony with the Khasis, Jaintias and Garos tribes, who themselves, are highly peace-loving by nature, the MLA said.

 “Thus as a responsible MLA of the BJP, I would request the president of BJYM Cachar District, Assam to kindly withdraw the FIR in best interest of the people of the state,” Shullai said in the letter.

Shullai has also requested Chakraborty to withdraw the FIR filed against the KSU president Lambokstar Marngar “in the best interest of the people, state and the party”.

“The matter is of serious concern and would require your kind intervention to ensure that peace and communal harmony prevails in the state,” Shullai informed Sarma.
