DC to meet MTTA members on parking lot

 SHILLONG: The Deputy Commissioner of East Khasi Hills district Jopthiaw Lyngdoh will meet the members of the Meghalaya Tourist Transporters’ Association (MTTA) shortly to find a solution to the long-pending demand of a permanent parking lot in the city.

Disclosing this here on Friday, Lyngdoh said one of the reasons for the delay in finding a solution to the problem was that the transporters have several bodies and there was no unanimity among different bodies as far as the issue is concerned.

“Some want to operate from the Polo Parking lot while others refuse to do so,” he said.

The district administration last year had removed the parking lot near the Ward’s Lake citing traffic congestion and asked the tourist taxis to operate from the parking lot at Polo.

Meanwhile, the MTTA has called off its July 12 rally to press for a new parking lot. “We have decided not to go ahead with the rally as we have not got the permission from the administration for it,” the MTTA general secretary D Nath added.

The MTTA now has decided to meet the State Chief Secretary WMS Pariat on July 11 in this regard
