Public sees ‘odd-even’ formula as solution for traffic chaos in city 18.6.2018 Meghalaya Times

Staff Reporter
SHILLONG, June 17: Traffic on the city roads has become a menace with rising number of vehicles and roads remaining same in their sizes with no addition of road surface in the city. The situation is such that today one has to spend long hours on roads to reach their destinations, whereas if one walks the distance can make it earlier.
Driving on the city roads have become more of a “nuisance” than being “pleasurable”, said respondents and for those who thought of taking a long drive to feel relaxed and rejuvenated then it becomes a nightmare for them to find their way out of the city.

Demand for legislation arises after social media fueling hate 18.6.2018 Meghalaya Times

Staff Reporter
SHILLONG, June 17: Social media has become a bane instead of a boon in the context of Meghalaya in particular and the country at large. With regard to the recent impasse over the Punjabi Lane incident, the matter which according to many is a “daily affair” was blown out of proportion with the aid of social media.
While falsity was the weapon used in order to create commotion in the society, the trouble mongers and vested interests could not have asked for a better medium than the social media where there is no decorum over the uses of language and a minimal chance to track offenders.
