@Adioz ....Wahkyn and Lostoin are small hemlets in the remote Jaintia Hills and Khasi hills dist of Meghalaya. These are basically small cluster of villages.tribes grown up respecting and worshiping their land and everything on it , contrast to the modern definition of "civilize" where own grown up exploiting the land where he grew up. It's govt duty to talk with them and realize them that what inside their land have no use if u can't extract it .
What our problem is we use those ppl are mediator who are hell bound to stop the project ,except act as a mediator they highlight the bad things to them , all these environmental fighter , liberal and these idiots from JNU etc if works as mediator then it's hard for us to crack these thing .
@ezsasa @IndianHawk .......... Mining in Meghalaya has nothing to do with ULFA. ULFA is mere a shadow of its past now. If you talk about terrorism in Meghalaya, its GNLA. But that too is active in Garo Hills sector basically. The real terrorist in these sectors are the NGOs and the prevalent State Government. Only a few days back some activists with political backing vandalized the UCIL office in Shillong. On top of that the state government had sued the corporation instead for taking out mining in the area without any prior info.
As far as the locals are concerned, they simply want good compensation in the form of alternate settlement to allow mining to be carried out. Its some of the local politicians who is fueling the fear to cook their own bread.
