Ex-CM, two others yet to vacate official quarters

By Staff Correspondent

SHILLONG, Aug 2 - At least three Congress legislators, including former Chief Minister Mukul Sangma, are yet to vacate their official bungalows despite repeated reminders from the Government.

Official sources said that apart from former Chief Minister, his younger brother Zenith Sangma and former Speaker of the Assembly Abu Taher Mondal are yet to vacate their official bungalows.

�We have sent repeated reminders to these Congress MLAs to vacate the official bungalows so that these could be allotted to Cabinet Ministers of the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance Government, but they have not done so yet,� the source said.

The State Government has just 20 official bungalows in the State Capital, which are used by incumbent Ministers. There has been no past precedent in the State of Ministers not quitting their bungalows once they fall from grace.

The Government, meanwhile, would take a firm decision post the Tura and Ranikor bye-elections. �Some decisions would be taken after the bye-elections,� the source added.
