Rs.411 crore supplementary budget in JharkhandAugust 31st, 2012 - 4:35 pm ICT by IANS
Ranchi, Aug 31 (IANS) The Jharkhand government Friday presented a Rs.411 crore first supplementary budget in the state assembly.
Deputy Chief Minister Hemant Soren, who is also in charge of the finance ministry, tabled the supplementary budget.
The monsoon session of the Jharkhand assembly began Friday.
A large chunk of the supplementary budget has been allocated to higher education and rural development, with these sectors getting Rs.40 crore and Rs.36 crore, respectively.
The opposition parties have criticised the state government for presenting the supplementary budget.
“There are many departments where the state government’s expenditure is zero. What is the use of presenting a supplementary budget when the government is unable to spend money,” asked Pradeep Yadav, Jharkhand Vikas Morcha-Prajatantrik (JVM-P) legislator.
