Article 370A is set to hit the public discourse in Meghalaya six months before the assembly polls. Traditional chief in the tribal dominated north eastern state are meeting on Wednesday next in Shillong to clear the roadmap to raise the demand.
The conveners told Assam Times that they are expected to formally raise the demand for inclusion of the Instrument of Accession and Annexed Agreement in the Constitution which is still applicable in Jammu & Kashmir.
All traditional organisations in Meghalaya are set to join the two day long convention to make it a strong case to ensure the rights of the indigenous people.
“The Khasi state inked the accession pact, and not the "Instrument of Merger", as they signed it on December 15, 1947. The Centre accepted it on August 17, 1948,” said a convener in Shillong.
