Puducherry, Aug 29 : Lt.Governor Kiran Bedi said the Financial Prudence lies in the hands of Ministers in charge with an alert bureaucracy.
Reacting to the annual budget presented in the territorial assembly by Chief Minister V Narayansamy yesterday, the Lt.Governor in a Whatsapp message on Wednesday evening said the key to the success of the budget is how honestly we use our money for the larger public good and how do we raise and source the untapped resources still not collected.
She said It is also important how do we recover our arrears lying locked up due to protracted litigation and how do we collect our taxes comprehensively, be it GST, Excise and other taxes, Ms Bedi added.
''Raj Nivas will continue to play its responsibilities with care and caution as per rules of financial management'', the Lt Governor said.
Meanwhile, CPI-M Secretary Rajangam in a statement on Thursday said the budget presented by Mr Narayansamy is one which “cheated” the people. (UNI)
