The Khasi Students’ Union (KSU) expressed surprise over the passing of a resolution which contained flaws for pursuing with the Centre to include Khasi language in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution.
In a statement issued here on Sunday evening, KSU president Lambokstarwell Marngar demanded that an emergent Assembly session should be convened to discuss the issue and pass the resolution by making necessary correction.
Marngar said that the Union was so elated after the State Assembly passed the resolution to urge the Centre to include the language in the Eighth Schedule which is also a long aspiration of the people.
“However, we are shocked to know that the resolution contained some flaws, and the government should have done it properly considering the fact that this issue has been pending for several years,” the KSU said while asking the Government to consider this matter seriously so that the resolution could be sent to the Centre without further delay.
On the last day of the Autumn session on September 27, members of the Meghalaya Assembly unanimously passed the resolution to urge the Centre to include Khasi and Garo languages in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution.
