Award under MDA entrepreneurship programme turns into loan

Chairman of Mawmaram Cooperative Society slams CM

Shillong, Feb 25: The chairman of Mawmaram Integrated Village Cooperative Society, Fairson Kharjana said he was surprised to know that the award of Rs 3 lakh given to the society turned out to be a loan.

Addressing a press conference on Saturday, Kharjana said that in October last year, Chief Minister Conrad Sangma handed over  a cheque of Rs 3 lakh to him under ‘Meghalaya celebrating entrepreneurship’ at State Convention Centre here.


Two weeks later, the Meghalaya Basin Management Agency informed that Rs 3 lakh is a loan and it should be reimbursed.

He also warned people that they may be compelled to pay back Rs 5,000 which they had received under FOCUS programme of the MDA  government.

He blamed the chief minister for fooling the people.
