Meghalaya Govt warns pressure groups not to take law in their hands
Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma warned pressure groups to not take the law in their hands and asserted that Friday’s surprise agitation called by the Confederation of Meghalaya Social Organisation (CoMSO) was ‘inappropriate’.
“Nobody can take the law in their hands, I urge everyone if there are concerns, we are ready to talk, but taking the law in their hands will not be accepted by the government,” said Sangma.
Commenting on the surprise agitation, he said, “That was sudden, and it was not appropriate. Though they just sat (on the road) and have not stormed (the Secretariat), it is not how things work.”

It may be noted that the CoMSO reiterated their demand for Inner Line Permit (ILP).
Replying to a question on the opposition to the Umngot Hydro Power Project from Mawkynrew in East Khasi Hills district and Moosakhia in West Jaintia Hills district, Sangma said the state government’s goal is to increase the overall power capacity in the state while assuring that issues in specific projects will be addressed.
