SHILLONG | Sept 06, 2019:
Meghalaya Chief Minister, Conrad K Sangma said that there is no truth in the allegations made by Opposition Leader, Dr Mukul Sangma regarding illegal transportation of coal in the state.
"The Congress has been making this allegation time and again. But we are very firm that this kind of illegal activities should not take place," Sangma said while speaking to reporters here on Friday.
Earlier, Dr Mukul had flagged the illegal transportation of coal in the state and how government machineries are being used to facilitate it. The Leader of Opposition had also alleged Chief Minister, Conrad Sangma of being directly involved in the whole process.
"The kind of modus operandi that is in operation today under the direct command of the Chief Minister and his other people who are partners in crime is going to create a dangerous situation in the state in the years to come," the opposition leader had said.
Terming that the allegations of the Leader of Opposition as "baseless", the Chief Minister said that the fact is that the State Government has, time and again, issued instructions to all the departments that they must be very strict on the issue of illegal transportation of coal.
