The state government has warned action against any attempt to disrupt the free movement of vehicles across the state.
“All deputy commissioners have been directed to take strict action against anyone attempting to disrupt the free movement of vehicles across the state,” Commissioner & Secretary in-charge Transport said in a statement issued on Sunday.
This came in the wake of the statewide agitation called by the Meghalaya Joint Action Committee of Commercial Vehicles (MJACCV) against the fuel price hikes.
The statement also informed that the state government is actively considering further reduction in petrol and diesel prices to provide relief to the consumers within the state.
In line with this, East Khasi Hills district magistrate Isawanda Laloo has also asked associations not to disrupt movement or prevent commuters and the general public from plying on the roads. “Action will be taken as per law against any individual or group found in violation of the law,” she stated.
