CM MUKUL SANGMA REQUESTED TO OPEN NEW OIL DEPOTS IN THE STATE
The CM of Meghalaya, Dr. Mukul Sangma discussed the status of the petroleum needs with Dharmendra Pradhan. He explained him about the need of petroleum depots in the state and because of the drivers union of Assam, how the state suffers because of the irregular supply of the petroleum products.

Also, the CM requested Dharmendra Pradhan to ask Assam Government to direct the oil companies like IOCL take strict actions against the driver union such that the oil supplies don’t get hampered in the state, and the people of Meghalaya shouldn’t suffer because of the irrelevant demands of the driver union of Assam.
