Meghalaya Govt flayed for NGT penalty

By Staff Correspondent

SHILLONG, Jan 6 - Opposition Congress today lashed out at the Meghalaya Government saying the Rs 100 crore penalty imposed on the State for failing to stop illegal coal mining portrays the despicable manner it is functioning.

In an emergency Congress Legislature Party meeting, the Congress not only attacked the Government for its poor management of the coal mining issue, but also opposed the Centre�s Citizen�s Amendment Bill stating that the legislation would have far-reaching effect on the North East.

�The Rs 100 crore penalty imposed on the State Government by the NGT speak volumes on the manner in which the State Government is functioning,� CLP leader, Mukul Sangma said.

Sangma said that the Government has been misusing the State machinery and firing from the shoulders of officials due to its greed and therefore such illegal activity was going on.

�The people of the State would have to pay a heavy price due to the greed of these people in the Government. The people cannot pay the price for the greed of these people,� Sangma added.

The former CM further said that the Centre�s proposal to pass the Citizen Amendment Bill is �anti-national and dangerous� which would affect the region. �This amendment to the Citizen�s Act would vitiate the environment and alienate the people of the region,� he said.

Urging Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal to quit the BJP, he said that he must oppose the Bill and protect the people. He reminded the Assam CM of his tenure in the All Assam Students� Union in which he took up causes of the people of the region.
