Meghalaya Govt to invite Harijan Panchayat Committee for discussion next week: Dhar

Deputy Chief Minister in-charge Urban Affairs Sniawbhalang Dhar on Friday informed that the government will again invite the Harijan Panchayat Committee (HPC) for discussion next week.


Speaking to reporters, Dhar said, “Maybe next week, we may call them (for a discussion) as we are ready to show them the formulae.”

He said that the government is ready to listen to HPC’s request for additional space. This was after the HPC had agreed, in principle, to the blueprint prepared by the government but had made some suggestions for modification in certain areas.


“We will listen to their request if the request is genuine but if the request is not genuine then what to say. We will discuss and if there are some changes, you will know,” he said.


The deputy chief minister expressed confidence that the matter will be resolved within this year.
