SHILLONG, May 9 � Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul Sangma yesterday said the practice of issuing �ultimatum� didn�t augur well for the State and urged all to desist from such acts.
�I have been seeing lots of ultimatum being issued and it does not augur well for the State,� Sangma said while reacting on the 24-hour deadline served by the pro-Inner Line Permit organisations to release the arrested Khasi Students Union president Daniel Khyriem.
He added, �People should desist from serving so-called ultimatum, whether it is by an NGO, group of NGOs or even political parties.�
He maintained that any action by the government will always be guided by legal perspectives.
KSU leader Daniel Khyriem was arrested on Thursday from here and sent to 14 days judicial custody, for his alleged role in damaging properties worth several crores of rupees during the organisation�s agitation two years ago.
Soon after his arrest, some organisations served a 48-hour deadline for his immediate and unconditional release by dropping all cases registered against him during the four-month anti-non-tribal agitations in the second half of 2013. � PTI
