SHILLONG | Dec 27:
The NPP-led Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) has maintained that they will prefer the imposition of Administrator's Rule (AR) in the Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) even after the United Democratic Alliance or UDA has regained majority in the Council.
"Our stand is very clear that AR should be imposed in the KHADC whatever may be the case. We know there is a change in the political equation in the Council. But the Government cannot tolerate the irresponsibility of the MDCs by changing sides from one group to another just to suit their political interest," Deputy Chief Minister, Prestone Tynsong stated here today.
According to him, the decision to impose AR was taken in the best interest of the Council. "The Governor should take over the administration of the Council till such time when the Government feels that the situation is back to normal," Deputy Chief Minister said.
