SHILLONG, April 21 - Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul Sangma today said the safety audit of buildings in the State would be taken up with an �utmost sense of urgency�. The audit would be made in a time-bound manner, he added.
Sangma informed that a team of professionals would soon be auditing buildings to check the safety level in view of the frequent earthquakes. He said the professional team would be drawn from IIT, Guwahati and such other organisations.
Sangma during a two hour-long interactive session with journalists here also said some of the major tourist spots of the State Capital would soon have bio-degradable toilets made out of bamboo.
The Chief Minister said he would instruct officials to have these toilets after it was pointed out there were only a few public toilets in the State capital, which is a major tourist destination. �I will ensure that these bamboo bio-degradable toilets are installed in places such as Khyndailad (Police Bazaar) and other areas for the convenience of the public�, he said.
Stating that he has received complaints about the public transport system, Sangma said, �We would soon have a review of the public transport system.�
The CM, who completed six years in office on April 20, said that it is important that there are frequent interactions between the different �pillars of democracy.�
