The Punjab government deputed a delegation of ministers to Shillong on Monday who met chief minister Conrad K Sangma in view of the law and order situation.
Meghalaya chief minister Conrad K Sangma who held several rounds of meeting during the day, had a meeting with the delegation sent by the Punjab government.
Punjab minister for cooperation, Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa who is part of the delegation, told reporters that the chief minister had assured that the state government was taking all possible measures to ensure security of citizens in the state.
“We would like to see that peace as well as harmony that has been there in Meghalaya, is not disturbed. We want peace and solution to any problem and we wanted to have cooperation between both the state governments,” Randhawa said.
Stating that the situation is not a communal problem, Randhawa said that the demand to relocate the Sikh people from Them ïew Mawlong (Sweepers lane), is a local issue which the Meghalaya government would take a decision in the best interest of both sides.
On Sunday, a four-member delegation comprising SAD MLA from Delhi, Manjinder Singh Sirsa, representative of the Delhi Gurudwara Committee, Manjit Singh GK and other members visited the city and met the Sikh community people.
