GoAP seeks citizens’ suggestions for preparing budget

ITANAGAR, Jun 24: The state government has sought suggestions from the citizens for preparing the 2019 state budget.
The best holistic suggestions from the citizens would be incorporated in the final budget, which is likely to be placed in the assembly in its maiden session in July. The move is expected to make the budget preparation an all-inclusive and participatory process.
Chief Minister Pema Khandu in a message said the time had come again to “put all our heads and hearts together to shape our future, steer our destiny, and plan to make Arunachal Pradesh a better place for our children.”
“The upcoming state budget preparation exercise has started and, like each year, we solicit your valuable suggestions and inputs,” he said.
“This year’s budget must draw a roadmap where we all intend, aspire and see our state by 2024. As members of ‘Team Arunachal’, please share your ideas, and I assure that all good suggestions, which are in public interest, will be part of our budget document,” the CM said.
He urged community-based organizations, NGOs, intellectuals, senior citizens, women activists, academicians, students and youths to participate in the budget preparation by offering their views and suggestions by logging on to www.arunachalbudget.in. (CMO)
