A one-day study tour to London was converted to a 10-day jaunt to European countries in 2006 by some Meghalaya legislators who produced “fake and inflated” bills for the trip that eventually cost the government Rs.1.67 crore, a report said Friday.
The incident dates back to a trip Oct 8-20, 2006, when the then assembly speaker with 15 legislators and three secretariat staff headed for London on a day’s study tour of the House of Commons, revealed a Comptroller and Auditor General report tabled Friday in the Meghalaya assembly.
The one-day study tour later turned out to be 10-day trip to Holland, France and Italy. The legislators after returning from the tour submitted “inflated” bills and “fake” documents to the assembly secretariat.
