TURA, Sept 27 - The Federation of Khasi, Jaintia and Garo People (FKJGP) has rejected the plea by National People�s Party supremo and Tura MP, PA Sangma, asking the agitating Ngos to allow non-tribals to participate in the upcoming GHADC elections.
�We reject the appeal of PA Sangma to allow the non-tribals to participate in the GHADC polls. We feel that the veteran politician should have kept the interests of the tribals first, given the fact that he projects his party as tribal-centric�, FKJGP Garo Hills general secretary Raksrang A Sangma said.
�He and his party has betrayed the aspirations of the local indigenous tribals of Garo Hills�, added Raksrang. The FKJGP further stated that the GHADC was meant for the welfare of the tribals and not for the non-tribals.
