Opposition calls on govt to cut down on wasteful expenditure

Opposition Leader Digambar Kamat has asked the government to cut down on wasteful expenditure citing Goa’s weak financial position. Speaking during a discussion on The Goa Appropriation Bill, 2019 tabled by Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on the floor of the House on Friday, Kamat also pointed out to the number of bad roads across all constituencies, which he pointed out has also resulted in wastage of funds pumped in for the road projects. “I know and understand the situation of the State. The State is going through a difficult financial condition. The wasteful expenditure has to come to a standstill or else it will be difficult to manage the State in terms of finances,” he said, while referring to the consolidated funds during the financial year 2019-20. 
The Margao legislator also slammed the poor condition of the roads and pointed out to the crores of rupees, which has been spent by the PWD. “I challenge all the MLAs to say that roads (in their respective constituencies) are perfect and that there are no potholes. The hot-mixing of roads in the last year has been washed away. You should check all this,” he added. He further pointed out that the State is surviving on GST and casino tax collection. The former CM also did not leave the opportunity to highlight the bad sports infrastructure in view of the prevailing uncertainty with regard to the State hosting the National Games.  To ensure that the State does not run into further financial crisis, Kamat said that exercising control of wasteful expenditure will resolve the issue.
