Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb has demanded for faster sanctioning of the unreleased amount of fund that has been sanctioned by the Central Government under the ongoing irrigation scheme. The fund is being delayed since the year 2016-17.
The Chief Minister said in a statement “Project proposal for gap funding ongoing minor irrigation schemes for an amount of Rs 84.10 crores, sent to the Government of India in the year 2016-17 for sanction, which is still awaited”.
However, there are many similar funds which are pending since years, even though BJP Government at Center earlier mentioned as the then CPI-M Government failed to send utilisation certificate at Delhi, thus the fund under various schemes were slashed or postponed.
