Leasing of land to UCIL

SHILLONG: Protesting the leasing of land to the Uranium Corporation of India Limited (UCIL), KSU staged a sit-in demonstration in front in city on Tuesday.

Last month the Congress-led MUA government approved to lease out 422 hectare of land for 30 years to UCIL for pre-project development in uranium-rich areas of West Khasi Hills district.
