Chief Minister DD Lapang (R) shares a lighter moment with UDP president Dr Donkupar Roy and Dr Mukul Sangma during the one-day special session of the State Assembly on Tuesday. (ST)
MPA moves apex court challenging Governor’s decision
SC to hear ‘minority govt’ case today

NEW DELHI/ SHILLONG: Even as the political circles are holding their nerves over the fate of the “minority government” led by DD Lapang, Supreme Court on Tuesday deferred the hearing of the petition filed by Meghalaya Progressive Alliance (MPA) against Governor SS Sidhu’s decision to invite the Congress to form the government till Wednesday.

On Tuesday, the apex court took up the matter but legal arguments against the Governor’s decision to swear in a “minority government” taken on Monday remained inconclusive. The Governor had asked Mr Lapang to prove the majority of his government on the floor of the House within ten days.

Appearing on behalf of the NCP-led Alliance before a bench headed by Chief Justice KG Balakrishnan, senior advocates Soli Sorabjee and Arun Jaitley contended that the Governor’s move was “illegal and unconstitutional.”

“The Governor cannot exercise any discretion when members constituting the majority are physically present before him. He is bound to invite the leader of such an alliance under Article 163 of the Constitution,” the petition filed by MPA secretary Conrad K Sangma said referring to Monday’s incident when NCP leader PA Sangma paraded 30 MLAs before the Governor.

However, former Chief Minister EK Mawlong, who had also extended support to MPA through a letter of support, could not be present due to his ill health.

According to the petition, the Governor had violated the recommendation of the Sarkaria Commission by inviting the Congress, having only 25 legislators in the 60-member House, to form the government.

The petition also referred to the apex court verdict declaring as null and void the decision of Bihar Governor in the “Nitish Kumar versus Government of India case 2006″ when Nitish Kumar moved Supreme Court against the Governor’s decision to invite Lalu Prasad Yadav to form the government despite being in the minority.

Meanwhile, speaking to The Shillong Times on Tuesday, MPA Spokesperson Bindo M Lanong claimed that all the 31 legislators belonging to the Alliance were intact.

Downplaying rumours that Congress had convinced some of the legislators in MPA to come to its fold, Mr Lanong said, “We are determined to defeat the Congress government both in the Supreme Court and in the Assembly.” (With inputs from Our Reporter and PTI)

BSF hands over list of 141 militant camps to BDR

Shillong: BSF on Tuesday handed over a list of 141 camps of militant groups and leaders, including frontranking ULFA leader Paresh Barua operating in Bangladesh, to the BDR and sought its help to dismantle them.

The list was handed over by BSF Inspector General (Assam-Meghalaya Frontier) P K Mishra to the Bangladesh Rifles (BDR) during the first round of the four-day conference between the two forces at the BSF frontier headquarters here.

“We have given a list of 141 camps of insurgent groups operating in Bangladesh along with the names of 116 rebel leaders and their 198 sympathisers, and asked for help to dismantle the camps,” Mishra told PTI.

He said to substantiate its case that ULFA, NSCN(IM) and other rebel groups like PLA, NLFT, UNLF and HNLC were operating from the neighbouring country, the BSF referred to the recent surrenders of some top HNLC and NSCN(IM) cadres, who had confessed to interrogators that their accomplices were in Bangladesh.

The self-styled ULFA ‘Commander-in-Chief’ Paresh Barua, its Chairman Arabinda Rajkhowa and HNLC General Secretary Cheristerfield Thangkiew were among those whose names figured in the list, he said.

“We have impressed upon them that many of the insurgents, including Julius Dorphang of HNLC, who surrendered recently, admitted having camps in Bangladesh,” the senior BSF official said. “The camps are a threat to India and we asked the BDR to help dismantle them,” Mishra said.

While the BDR is learnt to have verbally denied the existence of militant camps, they did not give any official statement. Issues like trans-shipment of arms from across the border, infiltration, cross-border circulation of fake currency and smuggling, adverse possession of land by Bangladesh and expedition of border fencing work also came up for talks. “We have given the locations from where the fake currency is coming and furnished details of the intruders apprehended and smuggled goods seized,” Mishra said.

Lapang to induct 3 Ind MLAs today

By Our Reporter

SHILLONG: The Congress bid to garner a working majority before the impending trial of strength received a shot in the arm on Tuesday as the three Independent legislators, who had pledged support to the party, formally associated with the party to form a new coalition, “Meghalaya United Alliance (MUA)”.

With Chief Minister DD Lapang facing a deadline of ten days to prove majority of his government on the floor of the House, the Congress-led alliance’s tally now stands at 28, still three short of the magic figure 31.

Meanwhile, all three Independent MLAs will be inducted into Cabinet on Wednesday at 11 a.m. The Congress strategy is to make sure that they do not give the slip, and at the same time send message to the vulnerable ones, if any, to join the bandwagon.

The new alliance with Congress’ Charles Pyngrope as chief whip and Independent Abu Taher Mondal as secretary was formed at a meeting at Mr Lapang’s residence here on Tuesday, aiming to rope in other regional parties or Independents to survive the floor test.

Two other Independents in the alliance are Limison A Sangma from Tikrikilla and Ismail R Marak from Rongram constituencies.

Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Mr Lapang said, “We are confident to prove majority within ten days in the House.”

He, however, refused to divulge the names of those legislators who have “expressed willingness to join the MUA”.

He also parried a question over the writ petition filed by MPA in the Supreme Court against the Governor’s decision to invite him to form the government.

It may be noted that actual strength of MPA and MUA in the House would be known during election of the Speaker which is scheduled before the Assembly session.

MUA entrusts CM to ‘negotiate’

SHILLONG: The newly formed Meghalaya United Alliance (MUA) has entrusted Chief Minister DD Lapang with the task of negotiating with regional parties ahead of the floor test in the Assembly due next week.

”As there are too many negotiators, the MUA has entrusted Mr Lapang to negotiate with the regional parties to prove the majority on the floor of the House,” Congress legislator Charles Pyngrope said after on Tuesday evening.

Mr Pyngrope said the Congress was open to have alliance, even with the NCP, already part of the Meghalaya Progressive Alliance (MPA).

”The door is open to all. We are a secular party and there are no untouchables. We hope to get the support of like-minded parties,” Mr Pyngrope asserted.

Cong misused gubernatorial post: BJP

A day after Mr Lapang was sworn in as Chief Minister, the BJP on Tuesday accused the Congress for using the gubernatorial post as a tool to achieve its political interest.

The BJP Meghalaya unit said the party high command had assured the State leadership of taking the issue seriously for restoration of democracy in the State.

The BJP, with one legislator in the 60-member House, is also member of the Meghalaya Progressive Alliance.

”When we had paraded 31 MLAs before him (Governor), what else do we need to prove. He should have invited the MPA (majority) rather than inviting a minority party (Congress),” BJP legislator AL Hek said.

Mr Hek also informed that he apprised of the dramatic political development in the State to Leader of the Opposition LK Advani, party president Rajnath Singh and national general secretary Arun Jaitley.

The State BJP also criticized the Governor for swearing in Mr Lapang as the Chief Minister and termed it as ”murder of democracy”. (UNI)

District council bill to be taken up today in House & many more..

District council bill to be taken up today in House
By : A Staff Reporter 3/12/2008 2:28:23 AM

IMPHAL, Mar 11: The Manipur Hill Areas Autonomous District Council Bill, 2008, tabled in the House today by the state TD and hills minister DD Thaisii for consideration and passing has been deferred for consideration in tomorrow’s session as per suggestion by the Speaker during the afternoon session.

The current session of the Assembly will conclude tomorrow.
Soon after tabling the Bill, Opposition leader Radhabinod Koijam made his comments over the lapses of rules and procedures for consideration and passing of the Bill as the report of the Hill Area Committee related to the Bill was supposed to be given to all members three days before presentation in the House.

Failure to provide the reports to the members in time created several inconveniences for the members who could not analyse the Bill deeply and it would not be appropriate to pass the Bill hastily, he suggested.

Later, senior Opposition MLA O Joy drew the attention of the Speaker to refer the Bill either to a select committee of the House or to allocate time for consideration in the next sitting of the House. Power minister Phungzathang, and MLAs V Hangkhalian and Dr. Khasim Ruivah made strong appeals in the House for having the bill passed today as passing of the bill in this budget session was very much required as the state government had already announced the tentative schedule for elections to the district autonomouscouncils of the hill districts.

The Speaker after noting the observations from various members of the House made an official declaration that consideration and passing of the Manipur Hill Areas Autonomous District Council Act 2008 would be held in tomorrow’s session.

Earlier, chief minister O Ibobi Singh introduced two other government bills in the House including the Manipur Appropriation (No.2) Bill, 2008 and The Assam Amusement and Betting Tax (Sixth Manipur Amendment) Bill, 2008.

Dr. Meinya urges timely completion of Jiri-Tupul rail line
Manipur Information Centre
New Delhi, Mar 11: Dr. Thokchom Meinya, MP from Inner Manipur Parliamentary constituency in the Lok Sabha last evening strongly urged the government of India and particularly the ministry of railways to see the Jiribam-Imphal (Tupul) rail line is completed by 2009, one year ahead of its target of completion.

Participating in the consideration of the Union railway budget, 2008-09 presented by the Union minister for railways Lalu Prasad Yadav, Dr Meinya congratulated the minister and his team for having presented a people friendly budget for the fifth time under the UPA government.

Coming to the seven national projects ranging from Jammu and Kashmir to other parts of the country and four to five projects belonged to north eastern India, he said, “I come from a state which has never seen a train in the last 60 years after the state of Manipur merged into the Union of India. The first railhead for Manipur was laid at Jirighat and it would be constructed under the name of Jiribam-Imphal (Tupul) rail line with the target of completion by 2010.”

He stated that this national project would take the train from Jiribam to Imphal and then to Myanmar and to South East Asia. The people of Manipur would be very happy when the train passed through their state and their economic activities that were slow due to bad communication and less infrastructures would be accelerated.

He further stated that the people in Manipur were looking forward towards development of their own activities. They were now yearning for very fast development.

Referring to the various problems taken place in this particular state, he underlined that the economic development was the key for all problems.

As the railway connectivity had become very essential part for economic development in the state, Dr Meinya urged the government on the floor of the Parliament to see the completion of the Jirabam-Imphal national rail project by 2009.

The revised annual plan outlay for the financial year 2007-08 for the state was Rs. 1420.14 crores including Rs. 500 crores under special plan assistance to the state.

The fiscal deficit of the states as a proportion of GSDP has come down from 10.73 percent in 2004-05 to 6.08 percent in 2005-06.

The mandated FRNMA mechanism has thus proved effective, it said.

The achievement of fiscal targets in 2005-06 and 2006-07 has also enabled the state government to earn a benefit in the form of writing off of government of India loans to the extent of Rs. 37.54 crores in 2005-06 and an equal amount in 2006-07.

The fiscal consolidation process adopted by the state government has been aimed at reducing diversions of development funds for non-development purposes without however affecting the resources for meeting establishment expenditure.

Reprioritization of expenditure has been attempted with a focus on outcome coupled with generation of more tax and non-tax revenues. The tax-GSD ratio, although small, has risen from 1.94 % in 2004-05 to 2.13% in 2005-06, 2.12% in 2006-07 and 2.17% in 2007-08. State’s non-tax- GSDP ratio has also risen from 1.67 % in 2004-05 to 3.15% in 2006-07 and is likely to be 2.49% in 2007-08, the state government statement on the fiscal consolidation said.

It added that in 2006-07 there was not a single instance of the state government availing itself of the ways and means and overdraft facility from the Reserved Bank of India. Expenditure was incurred as planned in the budget. With the consolidation and rescheduling of the loans from HUDCO, REC and NCDC, the debt repayment burden has been substantially eased.

While stating that the growth of the state’s economy is expected to be 11.74% at the current prices in 2006-07, the overview report of the economy also said that the growth impetus of the economy was low in 2002-03 and 2003-04.

However, the situation has improved since 2004-05 when the growth was registered at 10.14% at current prices. Agriculture sector shows a growth of 11.17% in 2006-07 while the industrial sector and the services sector shows 15.12 percent and 10.63 percent respectively in the same year. Measured by the wholesale price index of all the commodities, the inflation in 2005-06 was 3.89 percent.

RIMS to disclose names of KCP(MC) backed candidates if threat persists
By : A Staff Reporter 3/12/2008 2:24:35 AM

IMPHAL, Mar 11: The attention of the RIMS authority has been drawn to a news item issued to the print and electronic media by the KCP(MC) which asks inter alia, the director Prof L Fimate and the medical superintendent Prof Y Mohen to surrender before it latest by March 15, 2008 failing which drastic punishment would be given, a release from the RIMS has said.

In this connection the RIMS authority denies all the charges. The authority has never colluded with any organization nor had informed their “enemies” about the presence or coming of the KCP(MC) members to the RIMS complex for investigations into the alleged corruptions. However some unknown persons had come to collect information on which organizations had recommended how many candidates for nurses and attendants for appointments,etc, the release elaborated.

It is also a fact that the KCP(MC) had submitted to the RIMS authority a list of candidates for nurses and Grade IV posts with instructions to have them appointed. Since there is no scope for hanky-panky underhand plays in the appointments in this institute no assurance was given to it or any organization. All examinations are conducted by a committee comprising faculty staff of RIMS and questions are sent from outside the state in sealed envelopes.These are opened only on the day of the examination with coding system of the examination and results are announced the same day, the release mentioned.

In view of the grim threat to the director and the medical superintendent the names of the candidates recommended by the KCP(MC) will be released to the media anytime after March 15 if the situation so warrants. Should anything untoward happen to these top officials of the institute the candidates concerned should be held accountable, the release further said.

The Minister said, “Modification and expansion of existing Terminal Buildings are being undertaken at airports in Agra, Agartala, Coimbatore, Dimapur, Guwahati, Imphal, Jammu, Nagpur, Patna, Pune and Vadodara.”

Patel stated that airside works including expansion and strengthening of runway for wide bodied aircraft operations, extension/new construction of Apron for more parking of aircrafts, link taxiways and parallel taxi tracks were being taken up at these airports as per requirement.

At 24 of these airports, city side development through Public Private Partnership is being under- taken, he informed the House.

Mention may be made that the Government has taken up the development of the 35 non-metro airports within the country with the objective of providing modern infrastructure and enhancing non-aeronautical revenue.

The New Concept for the 35 Non-Metro Terminal Buildings include features such as Modular Design; Structured Steel with Toughened Glass Glazing; Vertical Air-conditioning System; Aero-bridges – with Glass walls; Walkways; In-line baggage screening for check-in; Escalators; Improved Signages; Integrated Building Management System; Intelligent Terminals; CUTE; Improved traffic management on city side.

As per the annual report of the Airport Authority of India in 2005-06, Indian airports handled 73.3 million passengers and 1.4 million tones of cargo.

The increasing number of passengers has in-turn led to an increase in the demand for aircrafts.

The National fleet comprised 170 aircrafts in 2005 only and it is estimated that India’s fleet will reach 500-550 aircraft by the end of 2010.

Of the 35 non-metro airports, 24 will also witness city side development through Public Private Partnership (PPP) route.
