‘Meghalaya yet to reduce fiscal deficit’

Shillong, Jan 19: Meghalaya has not made efforts to control fiscal deficit unlike some of the Northeastern states.

This was indicated by Union Home Minister Amit Shah, who, on Friday, urged all the states to control the Gross Fiscal Deficit.


He was in Shillong to attend 71st plenary session of the North Eastern Council.

He said Manipur, Assam, Nagaland and Tripura have made commendable efforts in reducing the fiscal deficit. He said the Centre will have to give thrust to create a flood-free and drug-free Northeast and strengthen water management by using NESAC. By creating big lakes to absorb rain water, we can attract tourism and can also strengthen the drinking water and irrigation system, he said.
