GNLA rebels reject Rs 5 crore offer

Shillong, March 4: The militant outfit Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA) has recently refused the offer of Rs 5 crore from a road construction company so that development work in the area is not affected, claims political secretary of the outfit Bikdot Nikjang Marak, the North East Today reported.

Reacting to a recent allegation by ASAK (A'chik Songna An'pachakgipa Kotok ) commander-in-chief Reding T Sangma, accusing GNLA Commander-in-Chief, Sohan D Shira of extorting money amounting to crores from a road construction company, Marak said in a statement issued through the militant leader’s personal e-mail account that a road construction company and a weigh bridge had offered the sum of Rs 5 crore to the GNLA which he claimed was not accepted by the outfit in view of development works being carried out in the region.

“GNLA can never tolerate misappropriation and moral turpitude as it is clearly laid down in our Army Rules and GNLA’s penal code. If his allegations are true, why did he not raise the issue in the General Assembly session for discussion” he questioned Reding.
