Picketing against uranium project hits govt functioning

Posted by Ramesh Khati on October 10, 2009

Shillong, Oct 9 (PTI) Functioning in government offices was today paralysed in Meghalaya in view of picketing held by Khasi Students Union (KSU) in protest against the proposed uranium mining project in the state.

The impact of the picketing was more in the capital city, with offices either remaining closed or recording very thin attendance, officials said, adding the state secretariat also wore a deserted look while banks remained closed.

The administration had clamped Section 144 CrPC since last evening to prevent picketers from obstructing movement of employees.

Two companies of police personnel were also deployed in specific locations of the East Khasi Hills district in view of the KSU agitation.
