HITO against violation
Earlier, in a statement, the Hynniewtrep Integrated Territorial Organization (HITO) has accused the Chief Minister of violating the COVID-19 protocols during the inauguration of projects and holding public functions.
“We are disappointed to see that random flaunting of COVID-19 protocols not only by the ministers but also by the chief minister on various occasions across the state. It is sad and disgusting to see that the protocols were violated by those responsible for drafting them,” HITO president Donbok Dkhar said.
