In connection with the state fund crisis, Meghalaya Youth Congress president Richard M Marak lashed out at chief minister Conrad Sangma to speak with Anurag Thakur, MoS for finance.
On November 16, Meghalaya CM Conrad K Sangma met with state union finance minister Anurag Thakur in Delhi.
Informing about his meeting with Thakur, the CM had tweeted: “Held meeting with Hon’ble MOS @FinMinIndia @ianuragthakur ji in Delhi and apprised him on financial position of the State and measures taken to increase revenue.”
Conrad also met with union home minister Amit Shah with whom he had discussions on the Citizenship Amendment Bill, Sixth Schedule, Punjabi Lane issue & other important issues during his recent visit to the national capital.
On October 22, Conrad met with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Questioning Conrad’s meeting with the junior union finance minister, Richard said, “Why did the Chief Minister meet the junior finance minister for the fund crunch that the state is facing when he has already met the PM and the HM?”
According to Richard, chief minister Conrad is “unaware” about the protocol and had no need to meet a junior union minister.
“Is he unaware of the protocol that he has to go and meet a junior MOS when it could be done with a single phone call or if he could have sent one of his ministers instead?,” the Meghalaya Youth Congress chief questioned.
