Shillong: The opposition Congress on Sunday said that nexus between politicians and coal miners has come to the fore with allegations made by Civil Society Women Organisation (CSWO) Amita Sangma against a leader of the National People’s Party (NPP) from East Jaintia Hills.

“Since the allegations are clear the police should investigate to find out the truth,” senior Congress leader and MLA Charles Pyngrope said.

According to Pyngrope, there is a nexus between politicians and coal miner which has been proven time and again that even though after the NGT ban on coal mining and its transportation it is illegally going on.

He also said that he was not speaking as a Congress leader but as a general citizen of the state even as he alleged that the transportation of coal is more now than before the NGT ban.

Pyngrope pointed out that if there is ban on transportation of coal how are trucks carrying coal in hundreds are passing through the roads every night.

“There is a nexus. Else how would they transport coal. What is the districts administration doing?” he asked

Pyngrope also said that the issue of assault on Agnes Kharshiing and Amita will be taken up during the special session of the Meghalaya Assembly on November 27.
