Pandemic won’t disrupt salaries, pensions, grants-in-aid: Conrad
SHILLONG: Meghalaya Government is striving to manage the financial resources of the state which has taken a severe beating due to COVID-19 pandemic.
Replying to a Call Attention Motion on the issue of the Centre allowing the state to borrow Rs 194 crore to tide over cash crunch, Chief Minister Conrad Sangma said the financial position of the state would all depend on the economic activities in the next few months.
He also said that the Government would ensure that committed liabilities such as salaries, pensions and grants-in-aid for schools were not affected during the pandemic-induced financial crisis.
In addition, Chief Minister also said that the Government was making best attempts to ensure that the MLA scheme fund could be released before the Christmas.
Earlier while moving the call attention, Mawlai MLA PT Sawkmie said that the Government must ensure that the Government employees are paid their salary every month without any delay
