FKJGP opposes shifting of Anjalee petrol pump to Upper Shillong farm

Shillong, Aug 3: The FKJGP Upper Shillong Circle has opposed the move to shift the petrol pump at Anjalee point to the land of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary department.

A delegation of the FKJGP met Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Minister AL Hek in this regard.


“We have come to learn that the state government has ordered for shifting the Anjalee Petrol Pump, Shillong from its present location to another area in order to pave way for the widening of the road from Umshyrpi to the site where the petrol pump is situated. That, it has come to our knowledge that the state government is in the process of allocating a plot of land at the farm of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Department at Upper Shillong for the private petrol pump in lieu of the land at Anjalee Point which the state government is acquiring for road widening”, the FKJGP said in the letter addressed to Hek.

Since the land belonging to the Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Department at Upper Shillong is meant specifically for development of dairy and other farming activities for the long term benefits of the state, allotment of land for establishment of a private petrol pump will defeat the very purpose for which the land was meant to be utilised by the concerned department, it said.

“We hereby express our strong objection to the move to allot land to the said petrol pump at the farm of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Department at Upper Shillong. We have no objection if the petrol pump is shifted to any other location but it should not be within any government property”, the FKJGP said.
