Tough times await Govt in budget session

SHILLONG: The Opposition is geared up to corner the State government on various issues in the upcoming budget session scheduled to begin from March 4.
NPP spokesperson James Sangma on Sunday they will raise various issues such as strengthening of the autonomous district councils and strengthening of the traditional bodies, but ruled out bringing any no confidence motion against the government.
“We will also take up the law and order situation which has not seen any improvement,” he said.
UDP working president Jemino Mawthoh asserted that his party will raise the issue of poor financial health of the State government.
“There is no money in any of the departments and if this is the case, how we will focus on development?” Mawthoh questioned.
He said the UDP will also target the government on lack of youth development since the State has ample human resources but there is no employment generation in the State.
He further added that the party will raise the issue of growing traffic congestion in the city, besides the role of MUDA.
