“There should not be any compromise in construction of Meghalaya Legislative Assembly”: AITC


​AITC Leader George B Lyngdoh on Sunday slammed the Government over the faulty construction of Meghalaya Legislative Assembly.


In a statement Lyngdoh said, “When the temple of democracy is being built, it is expected that there should not be any compromise.”


The dome of the under- construction Assembly building at Mawdiangdiang collapsed late last night as the Police said no casualty was reported.


The incident took place at around 12:30 am when nobody was working at the construction site.

He further asserted that it is an ominous sign for the people of the State,

The AITC leader said, “The State Assembly, especially the Floor and The Well of the House signifies hope, upholding of constitutional & democratic values, protection of the State’s and people’s interest, the crumbling of the dome is an ominous sign for the State and its governance.”

​The state Government is planning to hold the autumn session of the Meghalaya Legislative Assembly at the new building.

The work on installation of the steel structure for the dome started two months back.​
