Editor,

Through this column, I would like to bring to the notice of the concerned authorities, the plight of the consumers of Eechloy Gas Agency. On November 24, last several consumers were forced to take leave from their respective places of work only to be ‘blessed’ with a cylinder. The residents lined the street from 7.45 am to 2.30 pm. Finally cylinders were brought in a small vehicle at around 11am, when there were more than 100 people in the queue. People who had booked their cylinders more than two months ago were also waiting to be ‘blessed’. This agency supplies gas at its whim and does not answer phone calls when consumers want to know when they can expect the supply of gas. Cylinders are to be carried home by the consumers themselves since a shortage of porters is cited as an excuse, making a mockery of the home delivery system. Is the agency not supposed to bring the cylinders to the doorstep of the consumer when the price charged includes that of ‘home-delivery’?

I request the authorities to look into this matter and streamline the functioning of this agency. The clamour for a cylinder is such that it turns into cacophony.

 Yours etc.

 Bad decision MeCEL

 Editor,

Is it a typo or an intentional decision on the part of the MeECL to schedule Load Shedding from 4:00 PM to 10:00 PM in all parts of Meghalaya? I saw ads that say use hydro energy for cooking to save trees, fossil fuels etc. But if load shedding is effective during the crucial time of the day, how will we use electricity? My question is, did MeECL authorities think soberly when they proposed load shedding timings? If this is the thinking of the people running the Corporation, I bet they ought to be examined by a Psychiatrist to see if they are medically fit for their job. Everyone would logically think that the best time for load shedding is midnight till early morning.

Yours etc.,

 KHNAM merger a brainy decision

 Editor,

The decision of KHNAM President Paul Lyngdoh to merge with the UDP is both logical and practical. Paul Lyngdoh as a visionary leader had analyzed the party’s performance in the last two elections in the state.  In a democracy like ours, numbers matter. It is illogical and impossible for one man in the 60-member House carry the day on any issue. I believe that the intention of the KHNAM leader is to serve the people. Yes, we are in need of a better platform to voice the unheard shrieks and cries of our people.  Therefore, I appeal those who oppose this merger to rethink their potentials and not create further fissures at this juncture. The merger between KHNAM-UDP will add more volume to the existing voice on issues of our people. Can one string in a guitar be able to produce harmony? A merger is not necessarily negative and should not be seen as a drop of water in an ocean in which the drop loses its identity. Rather the merger should be seen as a synergy between the regional parties. Paul Lyngdoh as a mature politician could not have been blind to that fact. It is necessary to also understand the political climate in Meghalaya.

Yours etc.,
