Later, Meghalaya chief minister Conrad Sangma also took to Twitter to thank Union minister of state RK Singh for his intervention and state power minister James Sangma for diligently pursuing the matter.
Citizens in Meghalaya have been protesting the earlier regulation as load shedding in the state had disrupted normal life and businesses.
