Egenstar Kurkalang who is an advocate by profession has urged the Chief Minister of Meghalaya, Conrad Kongkal Sangma to intervene for the reopening of the Shillong Viewpoint situated at Lum Shyllong.

The urge made by Kurkalang for the Chief Minister to intervene on the matter comes after the Air Force personnel disallowed the public from even passing through the area by citing security reasons against enemies. The tourist spot was shut down on the 24th of March,2020 by the Air Force stationed in the area.

He said that all tourist spots have been reopened after the decline in the spread of Covid-19, but it is surprising that Shillong Viewpoint has been shut up till now which has greatly affected the livelihood of many vendors at this site.

Kurkalang also said that that the shop vendors at the area raised the matter with the District Administration of East Khasi Hills District but no action was taken till now.

At the same time, Kurkalang also expressed that the Air Force personnel disallowed the public to even used the road constructed by the PWD, which had always been used by the public of Mylliem Lum, Laitkor, Pomlakrai to go to Sanmeiñ, Lumparing and Laban. He also expressed his surprise over how the PWD can allow the Air Force personnel to take away the right of the people over the aforementioned road.
