Meghalaya: There is no reason for panic buying, says CM
SHILLONG | March 26:
Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K. Sangma today informed the public that there was no reason for panic buying as supply of essential commodities will be made available across the State during the 21-days lockdown period.
He said that purpose of social distancing and lockdown will be defeated if people do not follow the directives of the Government and District Administration, who have been working tirelessly to ensure that essential items and services of the Government is made available to the people.
The CM appeal came following the chaotic scenes in Tura, West Garo Hills with many disbelieving residents scratching their heads over what followed during the six hour relaxation of curfew today.
