Tura, Mar 10: Garo Hills Autonomous District Council MDC of Rongrikimgre, Winieson Ch Marak, has landed himself in trouble after he uploaded pictures of himself posing with two dead endangered birds.
The photos created a frenzy online after hawk-eyed netizens discovered them Monday evening. DFO of (WGH) Wildlife, Arphiyus Sangma was then informed of the issue.
The DFO said that the case was being investigated and they were trying to identify the endangered birds. WGH police have also been informed of the same.
Winieson Ch Marak, who recently joined the BJP, received flak from party members as well, including Bernard N Marak who said that justice was the same for all and a meeting on the matter would be taken up.
“The law is the same for all and the MDC as a leader should have led by example and not by killing what we believe to be endangered birds for his personal pleasure and consumption. His act is highly condemnable and action needs to be initiated if he is found guilty,” said Marak.
The party has allegedly also issued a show cause notice to the defamed MDC, however he was not available for comments on the matter.
