Shillong, Dec 16: The organization Hynniewtrep Integrated Organsation (HITO) today sent the memorandum to the Prime Minister of India Mr. Narendra Modi though the Governor of  Meghalaya Mr. Satya Pal Malik that the Government of India should constitute the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on the alleged illegal transportation of coal in the state.

The memorandum sent to the Prime Minister  the organsation said tha they appeal to your urgent intervention to direct the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) agency to take immediate action against the transportation of illegal coal by the Meghalaya coal Mafias which are well connected and have supposedly compromised all authorities including the Meghalaya and Assam Police.

since the NGT ban of rat hole mining in 2014 there has been thousands of tons of coal which has been illegally transported due to the lack of action in amending and exempting the Coal Mines Nationalization Act 1973, Forest Conservation Act 1980, from Meghalaya as it is in conflict with the Instrument of Accession and Annexed Agreement agreed between the Government of India and the twenty five Khasi States where land and its resources belong to the private and community land owners.

To, resolve this legislative conflict the past and present State Governments since last seven years have passed official resolution (on coal in 2015-2017-2018, on Forest April13, 2000, on Khasi Language 27 Nov 2018) in the Meghalaya Assembly urging Center to address the issues.

The organsation pointed  that no legislative resolution has happened till today (16 December 2021), and this delay especially on coal mining has resulted in thousands of tons of coal being illegally extracted and transported in the open from Meghalaya to Assam and Bangladesh resulting in the loss of huge revenue to the tune of hundreds of crores.

HITO alleged that  public knowledge today that illegal extraction and transportation has been moving in full pubic view openly since the year 2014 with a number of overloaded illegal coal trucks overturning from time to time making a mockery of the law enforcing agencies.

The organsation is  also pained to state that this illegal and criminal activity is causing huge loss of revenue to the State which is starved for funds and we therefore urge your personal attention to direct the CBI to take action as this is an organized crime deep corruption perpetrated with knowledge of the “highest level of Government and Police” of both Assam and Meghalaya.

In the memorandum the organsation also mention few incident to substantiate there demand for CBI inquiry on the allege illegal transportation of coal in Meghalaya, the Memorandum was sign by Donbok Dkhar President and Mr. Shaniah S Nongrum legal secretary.
