Meghalaya chief minister Mukul Sangma Wednesday said he would register his complaint to the Prime Minster Manmohan Singh against Minister of State for Rural Development Agatha K Sangma of trying to aggravate the fragile law and order situation in riot-hit areas.
“I am going to write the Prime Minister against the Minister of State (Agatha Sangma) for her distasteful behaviour. A junior minister is supposed to coordinate with the state or to criticize the government. Has she been directed by the prime minister to do so? Are they to restore normalcy or further escalate the violence,” Mukul told journalists. Ten people have died so far and scores were injured in the violent clashes between Garo and Rabha tribes that began January 1. Nearly 50,000 people were displaced from their homes and are staying in relief camps in Assam and Meghalaya. Hundreds of houses were burnt down in the riot-hit areas of the state.
“This is a distasteful behaviour. When the state government is trying to normalise the situation their movement in disturbed areas against the district administration’s advice will only worsen the law and order situation, which is otherwise was limping back to normalcy,” he stated.
Criticising Agatha, her brother and Meghalaya’s Leader of Opposition Conrad K. Sangma and their father and former Lok Sabha speaker Purno A. Sangma for not paying heed to authorities advisory, Mukul said, “It is presumed that they (Sangma’s) are taking advantage of the situation.”
