Meghalaya Dy CM opposes Uranium mining

"Meghalaya Deputy Chief Minister Hoping Stone Lyngdoh today reiterated his stand on opposing Uranium mining in the state even as the Centre decided to extract the ore from the Kylleng-Pyndengsohiong village. ''I will take up the matter before the Cabinet and request our coalition partners not to issue a No Objection Certificate to the Uranium Corporation of India Limited (UCIL) for the mining in Meghalaya,'' Lyngdoh said."
