SHILLONG, June 29 - The Editor of an English daily today apologised in person before the Meghalaya Assembly Privilege Committee for her article which targeted members who raised public issues in the House.

The privilege motion against Patricia Mukhim, the Editor of The Shillong Times, was lodged by former MLA John Leslee K Sangma.

Committee chairman Saleng A Sangma told media persons, �We have examined the matter and went through the article (by Patricia Mukhim) and we have expressed our dissatisfaction.

�Mukhim has apologised and that is why this case has been concluded. The committee will submit its report to the House soon,� he said.

The Editor had criticised and ridiculed publicly an issue raised by the former Assembly member during the Budget session last year following which the privilege motion was lodged with the Speaker.

John Leslee K Sangma had raised the issue in the House that indigenous tribal dishes should be served at the various State Houses and Mukhim had criticised it. He found Mukhim�s article had breached the privilege of the House as well as that of the members and had lodged a complaint. � PTI
