GNLA diktat muffles I Day in M’laya

Once again rebel diktat seems to have muffled the Independence Day celebrations slated for August 15.

GNLA, a prominent Garo rebel outfit operating in Meghalaya along with some pockets in Assam has announced general strike to disrupt the red letter day celebrations in the north eastern states.

Top rebels of the outfit, however, have exempted the essential services from the strike from Aug 14 midnight till Aug 15 evening forcing the security forces to remain alert.
