M’laya permits coal transportation again

In a move that defies the Supreme Court order, the Meghalaya Government has issued permission again to transport coals in the state. In it modified order, the NPP-led coalition Government permitted coal transportation triggering protest from the opposition parties and organizations.

The apex court on January 15 asked the state to ban on coal transportion after the coal-mine tragedy where as many as 20 miners were believed to have trapped inside a flooded mine in East Jaintia District.

The government issued order to implement the top court order. But suddenly on Sunday, the government modified the order allowing the transportation of coal.
