Williamnagar, April 30: In another audacious move, suspected United A’chik Liberation Army (UALA) militants fired at yet another petrol pump in the town of Williamnagar. But bizarrely one of the militants got injured as a bullet ricocheted off the fuel pump and hit him.
The Janusa Petrol pump came under militant fire at about 4:15 pm on Wednesday. Janusa petrol pump is about 4 kms from Williamnagar, district headquarters of West Garo Hills. The attack comes about two months after another petrol pump in the heart of the town was attacked by ANVC(B) cadres.

SHILLONG, April 30: Slamming Chief Minister Dr Mukul Sangma for accusing United Democratic Party (UDP) for political posturing in protesting the power crisis in state, the Party Wednesday said ‘Mukul Sangma is the Chief Minister of Meghalaya not the Emperor of Meghalaya’.
“Mukul Sangma is the CM of Meghalaya not the Emperor of Meghalaya and to say that the sit-in demonstration of UDP is political posturing is ridiculous. In a democratic set up it’s our Constitutional Right to point out the deficiencies of the Government and to bring corrective measures,” UDP working president and legislator Jemino Mawthoh stated in strong reaction to Dr Sangma’s remarks.

Consumers appreciate thermal power plant initiative
Staff Reporter
SHILLONG, April 30: Whether NEEPCO has any compulsion or not but MeECL (Meghalaya Energy Corporation Ltd.) consumers have lambasted the Chief Minister of Meghalaya. Dr Mukul Sangma, who is overlooking their own faults and is rather saying that NEEPCO is duty bound when a state is in a power mess. These respondents, who are MeECL consumers are of the opinion that irrespective of the fact whether NEEPCO is duty bound since it has been set up to cater to the requirements of the regional states, what is more alarming is the nonchalant attitude of the state government in dealing with the power scenario in the state, from surplus to deficit.
