Meghalaya: CM Sangma says no CBI inquiry without state govt’s approval


Chief Minister Conrad K. Sangma told the media that many states have done so, and this is nothing new. With this decision, Meghalaya includes Mizoram, Maharashtra, Punjab, Rajasthan, West Bengal, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Kerala as the ninth states to withdraw their consent from the CIA.

With this decision, the CBI cannot conduct any investigation in the state without the permission of the state government.


Former chief minister Dr Mukul Sangma and state leader of the All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) said they would have to look at the background to the circumstances that led to the decision. “The government should be held accountable for any demands made by the people. You should have the option of whether the people will accept any particular decision of the government or not. We have to give orders to go through, if people don’t do that. Accept then the government will have to give an option, ”said Dr. Mukul.


He also said that the CBI is one of the options and if not the Special Investigation Team (SIT) and other agencies.


“The CBI always gives you the power to instill confidence in the minds of the people that government means business and there is no reason to doubt their sincerity and commitment,” the AITC leader said. In order to demonstrate sincerity and determination in resolving some of the concerns of the country where an inquiry is required, sometimes the government has to restore the authority to invite an independent inquiry agency.
