The outlawed Hynniewtrep National Liberation Council (HNLC) on Friday claimed that its former finance secretary Wankupar Marwein did not surrender, and has retired from the organization.
Asking the Meghalaya police to stop provoking the outfit by making negative statements, the HNLC General Secretary Saiñkupar Nongtraw threatened, “Else, we would be compelled to disrupt the upcoming national games event.”
 “It’s an open secret that events of such a magnitude besides its splendour are more a money-spinning event for some political manipulators and few individuals,” he further alleged.
  “As an organization, we shall never lose our ground. Our struggle shall carry on no matter what the difficulties and consequences. It is only through our blood that we could serve to uplift our ideology,” he added.  Wankupar Marwein alias Bah Hep Trai Siej surrendered before the Meghalaya Director General of Police R Chandranathan on Wednesday here at the State’s police headquarters.  Nongtraw claimed that Marwein “retired” from the organisation on personal grounds and did not surrender as reported by the media.
“Our ex-finance secretary Wankupar Marwein did not actually surrender as the media reported. It was his personal stand to retire from his duties as he had served the HNLC for the last twenty years,” Nongtraw said.
He said that Marwein’s retirement application letter was received two months back and it was subsequently decided by the organization to relieve him of his duties.  Nongtraw said that the outfit has appointed Marius Rynjah (Hepkhoit) as the new finance secretary and Chandame Passah as the assistant finance secretary.
The HNLC general secretary wished Marwein a good life and health ahead. Marwein was first arrested in 1999 on charges of anti-national activities. Nongtraw cautioned the police to refrain from passing false information about HNLC’s financial condition.
 “Rather, it will serve them good to look at their own shady revenue collection, which is done through the illegal supply of coal and cattle smuggling in the entire state,” the HNLC leader said.  Nongtraw said the police should be aware that Meghalaya is facing a financial crisis.
  “That is the reason why the police are earning their private revenue through the illegal supply of coal and cattle smuggling,” he alleged.
  The HNLC leader said police should stop provoking the outfit by making negative statements.
