Bail to arrested members of NEPMU will be granted only by Court: CM

Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma on Wednesday said bail to arrested members of the North East Petroleum Mazdoor Union (NEPMU) will be granted only by the court and not by the government.


Speaking to reporters, Sangma said, “We have discussed with everybody and the matter is in court. They are requesting for bail but bail is going to be granted only by the Court and not by the government so that process is on.”


“But in that process some of the transporters were not satisfied or concerned people were not satisfied and hence discussion are still going on but just to share with all of you that all efforts are being put from government side to ensure public is not at the receiving end  and there is no inconvenience to the people,” he added.


Appealing to the public not to panic, the CM said, “At this point in time I would request the public not to worry about things as if the situation that comes in then definitely Government of Meghalaya will inform the people accordingly but let us not go with rumours, let us not go with news just to create panic among the people because that is not what is happening as of now.”


“Of course there is a problem in the sense that the discussion is still on and we are trying to resolve it but there is no immediate problem with the supply of petrol and diesel in the state and I woukd request there should not be any panic. If there is any situation we will inform but as of now things are under control,” he assured.
