Shillong: The plan of the Hynñiewtrep Youths' Council activists to stage a three-day hunger strike from Thursday at a parking lot near the additional secretariat was foiled by the East Khasi Hills district administration. "The activists were only removed from the hunger strike venue for defying the government's order," Marak said. Earlier in the day, the protesters paid tribute to former student leader Bull N. Lyngdoh on his 23rd death anniversary at Malki here and marched from there to the parking lot for the hunger strike. In the three-day Assembly session, the House should pass an official resolution to implement various anti-influx mechanisms, including ILP," Kharjahrin said. The council's president Peter J. Lawai said the "so-called comprehensive mechanisms" cannot be considered strong mechanisms, with the exception of the ILP, in tackling influx in the state.
