Guwahati: Union Home Minister Amit Shah will begin his two-day visit to Meghalaya on Saturday.
He will be accompanied by Dr Jitendra Singh, Minister of State for the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region, and G Kishan Reddy, Minister of Culture and Development of North Eastern Region of India.
Chief Minister Conrad Sangma last week conducted an MDA meeting with the Presidents of ruling parties and discussed Shah’s visit, among other issues.
The demand for Inner Line Permit (ILP) in Meghalaya has been a controversial discourse, with different sections of the society holding different views about its implementation.
While it has remained a long pending issue in the state, various stakeholders have framed different narratives on the ILP demand, and with Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s upcoming visit to the state, ILP is one of the main agendas in the discussion
