Mukroh Firing

New Delhi: As tension continued in Meghalaya after the Mukroh firing incident, Assam Petroleum Mazdoor Union has sent a letter to PSU oil marketing companies informing them of their decision to not load fuel in tankers.

The Union said that it has stopped the transportation of fuel to Meghalaya as it has been brought to their notice that the situation in Meghalaya’s Ri-Bhoi, Khasi Hills & Jaintia Hills districts remains abnormal.

The letter further said that they are afraid to go to the above-mentioned area for supplying petroleum products.

So looking at the current situation they have decided not to take any load from today (Friday, November 25) onwards until and unless the Government of Meghalaya assures them of the safety and security of T/T (tank trucks) crews.

Also, after the border firing incident, only vehicles with Meghalaya’s registration were allowed entry into the state.
