Staff Reporter
TURA, Nov 10: The poor condition of the AMPT road that connects most of the plain belt of the state came into focus once again after BJP leader Nalin Kohli attacked chief minister Mukul Sangma’s government over the poor road condition in Garo Hills.
Speaking at the annual convention of the Minority Morcha at Rajabala, the national spokesperson of the BJP and Meghalaya in-charge said that the MUA government in the state would best be remembered for taking the state backwards. The entire convention was attended by a few thousand of the party’s supporters in the area.
