Tribal Chiefs in Meghalaya want constitutional provisions that are similar to Jammu and Kashmir's Article 370

The Grand Council of Chiefs of Meghalaya will be meeting on August 17 to demand the inclusion of the Instrument of Accession and Annexed Agreement in the Constitution as in the case of Jammu & Kashmir, reports The Telegraph. The Grand council consists of the Federation of Khasi States and various other traditional bodies Will also to commemorate the 69th anniversary of the signing of accession agreement. Federation of Khasi States ‘spokesperson’ John F. Kharshiing said that it was important for all the ‘traditional organisations’ in the state to come together and demand the creation of Article 370A, similar to Article 370, which is applicable only to Jammu & Kashmir, so that the rights of the indigenous people can be safeguarded in a stronger manner. The Federation pointed out that the Khasi states had signed the accession agreement, and not the "Instrument of Merger", on December 15, 1947. The same was accepted by the Centre on August 17, 1948.
