However, Congress MDC and leader of opposition in the KHADC Manstudy Nongrem, pointed that he has not received the reply to admitted questions which remain unanswered that he has asked from the February and June Session.
“What is the reason that till date there is still no reply? The rule has been bypassed,” he said, while referring to Rule 60 A of the Assam and Meghalaya Autonomous Districts Constitution of District Councils), Rules, 1951 on the matter relating to unanswered questions on the last day of the session.
The Rule states, “Replies to admitted questions which remain unanswered on the last day of the Session, shall, within three months thereafter, be circulated by the Executive Committee to the members concerned with copies to the Chairman, and such replies shall form part of the proceedings of the last day of that Session.”
In this connection, the Chairman has requested the Executive Committee of the People’s Democratic Forum (PDF) coalition led by suspended Congress member PN Syiem to reply the unanswered questions on time.
