Meghalaya Govt maintains that relocation of Sweepers’ Colony will take place

HPC welcome Govt's blueprint for relocation of 342 families of Sweepers' Colony

SHILLONG, APR 25: Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong has said that relocation of the Sweepers’ Colony from Them Iew Mawlong has to take place.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Tynsong said, “If you ask me whether the government will go ahead with the proposal, the proposal is very clear as I said to you from day one relocation has to take place whatever you say.”

Tynsong said the Harijan Panchayat Committee (HPC) has made its stand very clear in its reply submitted on April 20 that they don’t accept the blueprint presented by the government to them. That is the case right now.

When asked, the deputy chief minister said that all documents are being studied by the advocate general and very soon the government will sit to discuss the matter.
