As per inputs, the meeting, in which two recently inducted ministers of the Motha, Animesh Debbarma and Briswaketu Debbarma, were also present, continued for an hour.

Speaking to Northeast Live, Pradyot Debbarma said that they met the CM in connection to immediate release of funds for the district council so that some development work can proceed. To which the CM has assured he will look into the request.

Debbarma added that the budget is not enough for the TTAADC, therefore, they had submitted a letter to the CM so that ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas Sabka Vishwas’ can also happen in the Autonomous District Council (ADC) and the CM assured that he will go through the request.
