Meghalaya to look into plight of tenants

By Correspondent

SHILLONG, June 16 � The Meghalaya government today assured it would look into the plight of tenants evicted from 24 G+3 buildings in the State Capital last evening.

Additional Chief Secretary Prashant Naik said the government would do whatever it can to help the tenants. Naik, in-charge of Meghalaya Urban Development Authority (MUDA), opined that the tenants had nothing to do with the violation of the building by-laws. �If there was any violation it was the owners� responsibility and not the tenants,� he said.

Last evening, several families were evicted after being given 24 hours notices by the district administration. Naik said the government would see that the tenants are given sufficient time to relocate.

The decision to seal the buildings was taken by a committee constituted by an order of the Meghalaya High Court. Some of these buildings have violated the building by-laws of the MUDA.

Naik, moreover, admitted that the MUDA needs an overhaul and the authority needs more people on the technical side. �There are weaknesses in MUDA. There must be more transparency and the enforcement wing must be strengthened. The MUDA has to be made efficient,� he stated.
