Tura: Senior BJP leader Bernard Marak has urged Meghalaya chief minister Conrad K Sangma, to clear pending salaries of employees as a Christmas gift to the people.
Bernard Marak has been on loggerheads with Meghalaya chief minister Conrad K Sangma on several issues, and he was recently released from the jail.
The BJP leader said it is the duty of the chief minister to ensure that people are provided their pending salaries before Christmas.
“The CM, Conrad Sangma should clear pending salaries as a Christmas gift. He is busy and showing keen interest in promoting expensive entertainment shows while a majority of the employees are yet to receive their salaries,” a statement issued by the BJP leader, said.
Bernard Marak said GHADC employees, SSA teachers, Adhoc and contractual employees, COVID staff and contractors in Meghalaya are yet to get their dues which are pending for several months.
“If he understands the true meaning of Christmas, he will walk an extra mile to ensure nobody is sad during Christmas,” the BJP leader said.
Bernard Marak said the chief minister should take full responsibility to clear the dues as he holds the highest post in the state.
“Christmas is just a week away and the anticipation of every earning member of the family hangs in a dilemma as no interest is shown by the CM to provide the basic needs of the people,” the BJP leader said.
Bernard claimed all central dues have been cleared to Meghalaya. “It is unfortunate that even centrally sponsored contractual employee’s salaries are pending.” he said.
