SHILLONG, Feb 21: Heated was the discussion on the MoU signed between the previous Executive Council and the Uranium Corporation of India Limited (UCIL) leading to bedlam on the floor of the House in the midst of a verbal war between former CEM, Hispreaching Son Shylla and the incumbent CEM, PN Syiem.
Even as almost all the members demanded the scrapping of the MoU, NOC and trading license issued by the previous executive committee, there was also a demand raised for a probe by the CBI into the alleged misappropriation of the money for road construction.
In this regard, the present EC has assured that it will bring in an official resolution on this issue on the third day of the ongoing budget session of the KHADC.
