Tura was a bit volatile: Ampareen

Speaking to reporters, Lyngdoh said that her intention to go for a three-day tour to Garo Hills was to review the health department, agriculture department and other departments under her purview.

SHILLONG:

Cabinet Minister Ampareen Lyngdoh on Monday said she had to abruptly abort her three-day tour to Garo Hills due to agitations by some groups.

Speaking to reporters, Lyngdoh said that her intention to go for a three-day tour to Garo Hills was to review the health department, agriculture department and other departments under her purview.

However on reaching Jengjal, she was informed that there was a protest going on in Tura town as some bike rally and black flag protest was there.

“I was briefed by the authorities that the situation in Tura was a bit volatile. I took a personal decision not to continue with my journey because I knew that there were other pressing issues that were happening in the town of Tura that needed addressing,” she said while adding “So in my personal valuation I decided not to continue with my tour and I abruptly aborted my tour programme as it was not going to be good for me to go for something else and then have other problems that I would need to deal with.”

“So I waited for the CM who was going to go three days after my Garo Hills tour to complete the process and the assignments and that’s exactly what happened. He went while wanting to solve the matter,” she said.

Lyngdoh was in Garo Hills before the July 24-mob attack at the CMO, Tura which according to the police was pre-planned and a conspiracy to murder the chief minister Conrad K Sangma.
