The women victims in Meghalaya have been facing trouble as there is no chairperson in the Meghalaya State Commission for Women.

The State Commission for Women has been running without a chairperson since October last year.

The Meghalaya government has allegedly not taken any step to appoint a new chairperson to head the State Commission for Women.

The post of the State Commission has remained vacant after the term of the former chairperson, Theilin Phanbuh ended in October 2020.

The Commission is responsible for solving various issues related to the welfare of the suffering women.

According to a media report, a group of women of the state met Meghalaya social welfare minister Kyrmen Shylla in November last and urged him to appoint a new chairperson and constitute a new committee with immediate effect.

But the state government is yet to fill up the vacant post.
