Reacting to chief minister Neiphiu Rio presenting a Rs 365.33-crore deficit State Budget for the year 2021-22 in Nagaland Legislative Assembly here on Thursday, leader of opposition TR Zeliang termed it a “contract-oriented budget”.

When contacted for reaction, Zeliang told Nagaland Post that when people were suffering, it was unfortunate that the PDA government was talking highly of development with little available fund.

He said the chief minister’s budget speech had no plan to rejuvenate the economy of the State, which was badly battered by COVID-19 pandemic, insisting that the government must and should plan how to redress the grievances of the farmers and business community.

With regard to SARFAESI Act, Zeliang said due to a self-made disaster by Law and Finance departments, banks had stopped giving loans, which made the overall situation that was already reeling under the impact of COVID-19 pandemic go from bad to worse. The people suffered silently, he added.
