The Meghalaya government has decided to take up the issue of recent Garo-Rabha ethnic clashes at the Chief Minister's meeting on internal security to be held in New Delhi later this month.

''The Centre has convened this internal security review meeting where I would be meeting various Central officials along with Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi,'' Chief Minister Dr Mukul Sangma said.

The meeting on internal security is slated to be held on January 31 and February 1.

Dr Sangma, who visited the various relief camps yesterday in East Garo Hills, advocated for close coordination between Goalpara and East Garo Hills district administrations and formation of peace committees at the village level to restore confidence among the riot-hit people.

Earlier, the Meghalaya government had announced financial support of Rs 10,000 and three bundles of CGI sheets for each family whose property were damaged and set ablaze by miscreants in the wake of the ethnic violence between the Garos and Rabhas that erupted on the New Year day.

At least ten people were killed and nearly around 50,000 people displaced on both sides of Assam's Goalpara district and Meghalaya's East Garo Hills district following the ethnic conflict between the Garo and Rabha tribes.
