Action against persons disrupting movement of vehicles in M’laya

Correspondent SHILLONG, FEB 14 | Publish Date: 2/14/2021 12:42:00 PM IST
Meghalaya government has directed all district magistrates to take strict action against anyone attempting to disrupt free movement of vehicles across the State. 
The directive was issued by Commissioner and Secretary for Transport department,  Meban Synrem after the Meghalaya Joint Action Committee of Commercial Vehicles (MJACCV) announced a “48-hour road-blockade” starting from 5 am of February 15 to mount pressure on the State government to reduce the spiral rate of petrol and diesel in the State. 
While terming the “road blockade” as “uncalled”,  the senior Transport department official informed that the State government is actively considering further reduction in petrol and diesel to provide relief to consumers within the State.  On the other hand, the District Magistrate of East Khasi Hills, Isawanda Laloo has also issued a statement urging associations not to disrupt movement or prevent commuters and general public from plying on the roads. 
“Action will be taken as per law against any individual or group found in violation of law,” she said. 
Commercial vehicles have remained off the road since February 3 in view of the indefinite strike demanding reduction in tax rates and revision of taxi fares in view of the steep rise in fuel prices.
