SHILLONG, Jan 12 � Union Minister of State for Rural Development, Agatha Sangma is trying to worsen the law-and-order situation in riot-hit areas by visiting disturbed areas against the district administration�s advice.
Chief Minister Mukul Sangma said here today that he would register his government�s strong protest to the Prime Minster about Agatha Sangma�s �distasteful behaviour� and ask him to prevent her from such future �misadventures.�
�This is a distasteful behaviour. When the State government is trying to normalise the situation her movement in disturbed areas against the district administration�s advice would only worsen the law-and-order situation,� Sangma said at a press meet.
Attacking Agatha and her father � Tura MLA and NCP leader � PA Sangma of not heeding the advice of the district administration, the Chief Minster said that the attack on Agatha and her father on January 7 in one of Goalpara�s relief camps was a result of such misadventure.
�They went into the camp against the advice of the district administration and anything could have happened, the situation could have gone out of hand,� Mukul said.
Purno and his daughter escaped a mob fury when inmates of the Chotamatia relief camp in Goalpara gheraoed the politicians and tried to attack them. Troops were rushed in from Goalpara and they had to fire in the air and also lathi-charge to disperse the mob.
�They (Purno and Agatha) are trying to take political mileage out of the situation instead of helping the State government,� Mukul said.
