The state government has directed the KHADC and JHADC to immediately close down all the toll gates erected by them along the National Highways and the state Highways.
The direction was given at a meeting chaired by the Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma in the presence of Deputy CM Prestone Tynsong, DCA Minister Lahkmen Rymbui and CEMs of the two ADCs.
Rymbui informed that as per law, the ADCs are not empowered to set up toll gates along the National Highways.
After the meeting, the two ADCs have agreed to shut down all such toll gates.
He said that the ADCs if required should submit  proposals to state government, which will examine and accordingly take a call on the matter
