KSU demand construction of Hostels for Locals

The Khasi Students’ Union (KSU) has made it clear that the protest against the allotment of land in New Shillong Township for construction of Nagaland Medical Lodge is against the Government of Meghalaya not Government of Nagaland by saying that the government of Meghalaya should relocate the proposed Nagaland Guest House to another area not far from the North Eastern Indira Gandhi Regional Institute of Health and Medical Sciences (NEIGRIHMS).

KSU general secretary, Donald Thabah asserted that the plot of land allotted to the Nagaland government should be used for the benefits of the domiciles of the state and the state government should construct a medical lodge or a boarding house for the benefit of the local people especially those coming from the rural areas instead of giving it away.

He added that a government lodge should have been constructed in this area, providing all the facilities at government rate for our people particularly those coming from far-flung areas like Jaintia Hills and Garo Hills.
