SHILLONG, Sept 6 � Meghalaya�s proscribed Garo National Liberation Army (GNLA) has threatened to carry out serial blasts in the Garo Hills region in protest against Chief Minister Mukul Sangma�s decision to intensify counter-insurgency operations there.
�We will blast serially all government (including Congress) offices in all the five districts of Garo Hills. Now the ball is in the government court to decide whether they stop or continue with police operations,� GNLA said in a statement. The outfit also demanded immediate release of their arrested chairman Champion Sangma and general secretary Dalbin N Marak.
The �Hill storm operation� of the police was aimed at flushing out militants from their hideouts in the jungle and would continue for another month or two, police said. � PTI
