Shillong,March 15: The state government has spent over Rs 2 crore for 16 flights to Delhi from Shillong operated by Fly Big.
During the question hour, the oppostion AITC member HM Shangpliang pointed out that the Shillong-Delhi flight is a failure.
Earlier, the question on the matter was put forward by Mohendro Rapsang (Congress).
Shangpliang said as per the MoU, the government is paying over Rs 12 lakh per trip and the inability of FlyBig to operate the flight proved that the Shillong-Delhi flight failed.
However, in response, the chief minister Conrad Sangma said this cannot be told as failure but added that there are challenges.
Conrad said the government will examine the entire process if FlyBig delays resuming the Delhi-Shillong-Delhi flight.
Transport Minister Dasakhiatbha Lamare said time till this month was given to FlyBig to get back to the state government.
