Shillong: Meghalaya Congress president Vincent Pala on Wednesday slammed the Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) government for failing to curb rising prices of fuel in the state. This is the first time that fuel prices have crossed the three digit mark in the state.
“This would have a very negative impact in the tribal areas since people mostly rely on vehicles as a mode of communication or travelling. It would definitely have a negative impact on the common people,” the Congress chief said.
Pala further stated that the fuel price hike was bound to have an adverse impact on the economy, especially in rural areas.
He added that the party had decided to carry out a series of agitation concerning this issue but they were not going ahead with it keeping in mind the upcoming by-polls and the pandemic.
